Union Assurance has continued to deliver strong and dependable solutions for a host of Sri Lankan individuals and families. With its unique combination of service excellence, product excellence and continuous innovation, Union Assurance continues to set the benchmark high for the sector in Sri Lanka. 
Union Assurance continued its strong commitment to social service in the first quarter of 2015. The company’s corporate social responsibility programme continued its commitment to raising awareness on thalassemia and preventing the spread of dengue, with the launch of decisive programmes aimed at creating the maximum impact. 
Thalassemia is a blood disorder, which could inhibit the normal development of haemoglobin in the bloodstream. The condition is spread through the intermarriage of two positive carriers of the disease. It is an unfortunate, yet entirely preventable condition – for which awareness raising, at the earliest stage, is of utmost importance. 
Union Assurance CSR initiatives in the first quarter of the year managed to reach a total of 10 programmes – which reached over 980 people – with eight programmes being carried out for teachers and two for students. 
Dr. Nilam, in charge Consultant Paediatrician of the National Thalassaemia Centre, stated, “It is important to get the message across to young people, who for lack of knowledge, maybe putting themselves and others at risk. We, at the National Thalassemia Centre, are grateful to the efforts of the team at Union Assurance in helping us achieve these goals. 
Additionally, strong interventions were made in the attempt to curb the spread of dengue, with nine programmes in the Colombo metropolitan area, which reached a total of 634 people. 
Colombo Municipal Council Chief Medical Office Dr. Wijayamuni statesd, “Dengue continues to be a pervasive problem for the country, as well as Colombo metropolitan area. The Public Health Department of the CMC was very fortunate to have the help of such a dedicated team of people from Union Assurance who were committed to make a difference for our communities and neighbourhoods. By analysing the statistics of the first quarter of the year shows a clear decline in the number of cases reported, owing to the effective programmes carried out.”
Union Assurance AGM Marketing and Distribution Dharshana Amerasinghe commented, “Being good corporate citizens is a strong part of the Union Assurance philosophy. It is important to contribute to the development and wellbeing of our communities. To this effect, we are committed to continuing to make a strong impact through our CSR initiatives.”
Union Assurance’s expressed goal of creating healthier and secure communities is in line with their overall ethos of building partnerships with their customers that is based on the delivery of transparency, respectfulness and convenience. The company will continue to deliver on its promise of trust, with more programmes designed to foster healthier communities in the future.
