In an effort to reach out to various groups and sectors in the society, Cebuana Lhuillier Microinsurance (CLMI) formed a partnership with 1 GUARDIANS Nationalist of the Philippines (1GANAP) through a Memorandum of Agreement Signing held recently in Makati City.
1GANAP is an organization composed of both active and retired military personnel who aims to promote the values of brotherhood and unity. They also act as community volunteers during calamities and natural disasters. Because of this, they are one of the first groups to be tapped by the government when it comes to providing assistance to people in need.
1GANAP is one of the first groups to benefit from TanodCARE, CLMI’s group insurance specially designed for community peacekeepers and volunteers. For only P125, its members can get at least P50,000 coverage for accidental death, unprovoked murder and assault, permanent total disability, and even medical reimbursement valid for one year. Extended reach also includes the insured’s relatives and constituents.
“Thanks to the efforts of Cebuana Lhuillier Area Manager Adrian Bernados and his team, members of 1GANAP will be insured by TanodCARE so they can continue to aid and protect the people without worrying about their own safety. We acknowledge that the organization go through great lengths in protecting the people, so CLMI will ensure that they will get the same treatment as well,” said CLMI General Manager Jonathan Batangan.
According to Batangan, the Philippines is one of the leading countries in microinsurance globally. However, only 23% of the population in the Philippines is insured. With natural disasters and calamities becoming a regular occurrence in the country, the government sees the need for microinsurance.
Through the introduction of TanodCARE and other group insurance products, Cebuana Lhuillier aims to educate the people on the concept of microinsurance and its importance, with plans to develop more insurance products to suit each and every Filipino.
