Local insurance company Alliance Insurance Group has availed up to M1.5-million to help mitigate and cushion the impact of the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic on vulnerable sections of society.
Alliance Insurance Group is an innovative and seasoned company that has been making inroads in the local insurance industry for the past 26 years.
Having noted the worldwide spread of Convid-19 and its impact on the economy, companies and households, the company has identified three sectors to reach out to countrywide, which will be assisted in a phased manner starting on June 11.
Registered orphanages and old age homes will receive food parcels based on the number of children and elderly people they look after.
As for street vendors selling perishable goods, they will be assisted with stock vouchers.
Finally, Alliance has procured personal protective equipment which will be distributed to street vendors, taxi operators and police, among sectors that involve interaction with many people on a daily basis.
