Fairfirst Insurance announced that they were able to reach out to more than 1000 school children, educating them on health and safety tips through a series of webinars, maintaining social distancing. 

These online sessions were carried out in collaboration with the National Hospital of Sri Lanka, National Coordinator - Training Pushpa Ramyani, as the moderator.

It is said, at a time when schools have commenced re-opening, these series of workshops have shared important information to promote a safer school environment. 

Manager Marketing Operations and CSR Supun Kotuwegoda stated, “I am very happy that our workshop reached and educated many households. It is very important that we educate our school children in any way and as much as possible on maintaining a safer school environment to protect themselves.”

Chief Marketing Officer Sasith Bambaradeniya mentioned, “Business is a force to do good and a good business helps you give back to the community even in the smallest way. This workshop was a very important part of our CSR agenda as we believe these programmes will help safeguard our country’s future generations by reinstating how important it is to uphold proper health and safety practices.”

Fairfirst wishes to continue their commitment in educating the community and will be launching further sessions in the future. Its community driven initiatives range from launching road safety programmes across schools where they educate and empower school kids on road rules and traffic control. Subsequently they issue traffic warden vests and a certificate by endorsing the students as official ‘school traffic wardens’. They have also reached out to the communities in times of hardship and turbulence with donations focused on rebuilding and strengthening the society. 

Fairfirst Insurance Limited is part of the global Fairfax Group, headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
