Vodacom gifts breadwinners with special needs Tsh. 30 million insurance policy for a year
Vodacom gifts breadwinners with special needs a one-year Tsh. 30 million insurance policy for a year at the CRDB Bank Marathon.
Vodacom Tanzania, the leading technology service provider in the nation, gave three winners with special needs an insurance cover called Faraja Yangu under the VodaBima product. The cover was awarded at the CRDB Bank marathon on Sunday and is valued at about Tsh30 million. The policy will cover the winners and their three dependents for a year.
Vodacom funded Tsh10 million for the CRDB Marathon, which had the theme “Kasi Isambazayo Tabasamu,” in collaboration with other partners and the Vodacom Tanzania Foundation. Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in Tanzania (CCBRT) and the Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute (JKCI) will share the aggregate funds raised. The funds will be used to treat women with fistulas at CCBRT and to pay for surgery for disadvantaged youngsters with heart conditions.
Vice President of the United Republic of Tanzania Dr. Phillip Mpango, who was the event’s guest of honor, spoke during the presentation of checks to officials from the Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute and the CCBRT Hospital.
“The government’s policy prioritizes mother and child health. I am relieved to see that this race is aimed at helping to strengthen this area by making sure the intended goal is achieved.”
He continued by pleading on other institutions and stakeholders to maintain this support in order to assist disadvantaged communities, particularly those that include women, children, and the elderly.
Rosalynn Mworia, Director of Corporate Affairs for Vodacom and Director of the Vodacom Tanzania Foundation, argued for her position and said;
“Vodacom aims to raise awareness on its VodaBima products and get more users to use the service and products offered and the benefits that comes from accessing insurance products through VodaBima.”
The major objective, according to her, is to promote inclusion in Tanzanians’ daily life in general and in the financial and economic sectors in particular. With insurance now being accessible through mobile services, more Tanzanians who would have otherwise missed out on this essential service will now be able to obtain the protection they need and deserve.
In light of the foregoing, she pointed out that the Faraja Yangu product’s insurance coverage, which was given to the winners and their three dependents, will cover three categories: life insurance, hospital cash, and personal injury.
