The leadership team of Fairfirst Insurance met up with Pastor Roshan Maheshan on 14 May. This meeting took place at the Zion Church, which was one of the sites of the dastardly Easter Sunday terror attacks. 

At this meeting Dr. Sanjeev Jha offered condolences and support to communities affected by the terror attacks in April. In this regard, he volunteered the support of the 1,500 employees and associates of Fairfirst. In addition, he handed over a cheque as donation for the rehabilitation of the affected families.

Fairfirst Insurance, with the support from the Fairfax Group, has earmarked a charity fund which will be deployed across different organisations for the assistance and support of those impacted both in terms of their immediate as well as future needs.

Pastor Roshan Maheshan stated: “The Evangelical Zion Church started from humble beginnings and has grown over the years, becoming popular for the Wednesday healing services. Many people from the surrounding areas visit the church including a large number from many different faiths. 

“However, on Easter Sunday the Church and community faced a terrible tragedy which affected the lives of precious believers. Towards the proceedings in rebuilding and healing the shattered lives of our community, I want to take this opportunity to thank Fairfirst Insurance and its parent Fairfax Financial Holdings for their commitment. Your outstretched hands have strengthened us to continue to do the good work of the Lord Jesus.”
