Insurance firm expresses commitment to CSR
KBL Insurance Limited has expressed its commitment to corporate social responsibility and development of the societies where it operates.
A statement said the company expressed the commitment during a health walk and eye screening exercise put together by the Federal Nigerian Society for the Blind in Lagos, in which residents, especially those on the island, participated.
The event was supported by KBL Insurance Limited (a subsidiary of Keystone Bank Limited), as part of its corporate social responsibility, focused on giving back to the host communities.
The activity was part of the 2022 edition of the White Cane Safety Day celebration, themed, ‘Together crossing new boundaries’. It is a global October event which is targeted at raising awareness on the plights of visually-impaired persons and raising funds to take care of their needs.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, KBL Insurance Limited, Mrs Ukachi Orji, said her organisation’s passion for the less privileged informed its decision to support the exercise.
She said, “KBL Insurance Limited is passionate about the physically challenged, especially persons who have issues with their sight and other groups who cannot do a lot of things on their own.
“We strongly think they need all the care, and we are committed to assisting them as much possible,” she said.
She added that it was also part of KBL’s way of giving back to society as a responsible corporate player.
