AIICO Insurance Plc says it will to continue to positively impact on the health of its customers and Nigerians through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects.

Mr Segun Olalandu, Head, Strategic Marketing And Communications of AIICO, in a statement made available on Thursday in Lagos, said one of the key areas of focus for the insurer’s CSR, is health and well-being.

Olalandu said that AIICO had been able to create better relationships, connect deeply with the community and its people via several socially impactful programmes and activities over the years.

He explained that the company had established relationships with partner agencies, government establishments and non-profit organisations through which it touches many lives.

“Annually, AIICO commemorates World Blood Donor Day, with an internal blood donation drive in partnership with the Lagos State Government through its agency; the Lagos State Blood Transfusion Service.

“AIICO’s employees troop out voluntarily to donate blood. This intervention is in response to the enormous supply gap and the continuous rise in the demand for blood in local health institutions.

“AIICO is also helping to fight and end infant homicide (infanticide) in Nigeria, which is a barbaric practice that is unfortunately still in practice in some local communities.

“AIICO donates N100 from every sale of its Travel and Automobile insurance products to this cause yearly.

“We partnered with ActionAid Nigeria and Vine Heritage Home, who are at the forefront of the campaign to rescue these children.

“They provide them with shelter, access to quality education and ensure they reintegrate into the society without harm,” he said.

According to him, AIICO, in 2022 partnered with HACEY to distribute treated mosquito nets to many households through Primary Healthcare Centers in local communities across Lagos, Rivers, and Oyo states.

Olalandu said this became necessary as malaria accounted for up to 30 per cent of all childhood deaths, 11 per cent of adult deaths and impacted adversely on the public health of the region.

He stated that over 500 women benefited from the enlightenment on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of malaria, besides over 3,000 who were engaged online.

The AIICO spokesman noted that the company had consistently driven awareness and treatment of breast cancer through its partnership with CancerAware Nigeria.

Olalandu said, as a result, AIICO sponsored the treatment of 30 women with triple-negative breast cancer, supported 100 of its employees and their spouses for breast cancer scans, mammograms and other public enlightenment campaigns.

According to him, AIICO recently co-sponsored free eye surgeries through a partnership with Indo-Eye Care Foundation in Lagos and 2,000 Nigerians benefited from the project and had their eye sights fully restored.

“These commitments to impact meaningfully on people and communities, leverage on result-focused partnerships, continues to endear the AIICO brand to the Nigerian marketplace.

“It is one of the factors that keep many individuals and corporates entities as our long-term customers, while attracting new ones,” Olalandu added.
