In commemoration of the 2021 World Blood Donor Day, Heirs Life Assurance (HLA) said it partnered with Avon Medical to organise a blood donation needed by Nigerians in dire need of medical attention.
According to the insurer, the event which took place at the ultramodern Avon Medical Dialysis Centre in Ikeja, Lagos, was the maiden edition of such partnership between both companies and its objective was to increase awareness of the importance of safe blood for transfusion and highlight the critical role voluntary blood donors play in national health.
Speaking at the event, the Chief Marketing Officer, Heirs Life Assurance, Ifesinachi Okpagu, said that the partnership is in line with the company’s goal of promoting, not just the importance of life insurance, but wholesome living.
“At the core of our business operations at Heirs Life Assurance is care for people and their families and we are pleased to have demonstrated this with our partnership with Avon Medical. There are several statistics that show that blood donation is of much benefit to the end user as much as it is to donors and here today, we are raising awareness for the need to encourage this culture and celebrate as many that have come out to be superheroes”, she said.
The Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Avon Medical, Shekinah Olagunju, also expressed delight in the partnership, describing it as laudable especially as it helps both companies further their commitment to building a healthier nation and, in the process, improving the economy and transforming Africa; values held by the companies within the Heirs Holdings group portfolio.
