NSIA Insurance Limited has joined the teeming private sector and individuals in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world, by making financial contributions to the Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA) COVID-19 Support Fund.
Following the increasing spread and unfolding effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Nigeria, the umbrella body of Insurance companies in Nigeria, Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA) set up “The Nigerian Insurers Association (NIA) COVID-19 Support Fund” to raise funds to combat the pandemic.
The association which seeks to contribute to legislation and decisions made by the Government in the best interest of the economy, has also volunteered to acquire testing kits and protective gears to help further mitigate the spread of the virus.
The NIA also announced a donation of N1m free life insurance cover to health workers and allied professionals catering to the needs of COVID-19 patients, which has been made possible through the collective contributions of Insurance companies in Nigeria.
As an organisation that cares, NSIA Insurance salutes this laudable gesture and has made a financial commitment in support of the decision of the Nigeria Insurers Association.
According to the MD/CEO of NSIA Insurance, Ebelechukwu Nwachukwu, “We urge the general public to comply with local authorities and stay indoors while following the World Health Organisation’s guidelines for staying safe during this period. Our hearts go out to those families who have lost dear ones in the course of this pandemic and pray that they would have the strength to pull through the pain”.
Ebelechukwu Nwachukwu added, “Our staff members are currently working remotely, though our offices are closed, which means that we are still very much available to do business. We have an array of life products that we encourage customers to take at this time. We also would want people to take householder insurance policies now since everyone is home and may need it for possible eventualities. Insurance at a time like this should be taken seriously.”
