workers have put the communities' needs above their own health and wellbeing. Aside
from COVID-19, the exposure to infectious diseases is not over even after ending
their work, as dengue cases continue to plague homes. By engaging the help of
the community at large, we hope to play a part in bringing more of these
amazing stories of resilience to light and paying tribute to our essential
workforce. This is a little gesture of appreciation for the sacrifices that
they have and continue to make as we deal with this crisis," said Ms Melita Teo, Chief Customer and Digital
Officer, AIA Singapore.
This activity is part of a regional AIA
#ShareTheLove movement taking place across Asia. It is during these challenging
times that we realise the positive impact that love can bring. Be it for
ourselves, our family, or the community, a little sharing of love goes a long
way. In Singapore, besides offering 2,000 complimentary AIA
#ShareTheLove Insurance plans as part of its efforts of paying tribute
to essential workers, AIA Singapore will also be raising funds for AIA

AIA Singapore has long played an important role
in progressing education, wellness and enrichment programmes for children and
youths from its adopted charity, Children's Wishing Well, supporting the cause
for the third year. With corporate social responsibility continuing to be a key
priority, even amidst a crisis, the life insurer today also announced an
expansion of its giving commitment by partnering with a new beneficiary, the
VIVA Foundation, to do more to urgently narrow Singapore's protection gap by
raising funds for paediatric cancer research.
