AIA Insurance continued its commitment towards one of Sri Lanka’s longest standing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects, the AIA Poson Safety Program for the 27th year, this Poson. 

Held across three days, in Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Dambulla and Mihintale, the program facilitated 500 lifeguards across 22 reservoirs and lakes to ensure that pilgrims are safe when they bathe in the bodies of water. AIA also marked warning signs around the areas on where it is dangerous and safe to bathe while creating awareness on the dangers of drowning through displays, signboards, hoardings, and pennants across the Anuradhapura District, to encourage pilgrims to be cautious. 

Despite the current economic challenges, AIA was determined to continue its societal endeavours to conduct the lifesaving program and be there to protect those pilgrims who gathered together in these sacred locations to engage in powerful religious activities and pray for our motherland. This year AIA’s project was successful in achieving zero deaths due to drowning.
