ACE Organizes Third Annual Regional ‘Day of Service’ in Asia Pacific

SINGAPORE--()--ACE Group announced today its third annual Regional ‘Day of Service’ in Asia Pacific, during which its employees from life and general insurance operations across the region will devote their time to various charitable projects during the week of 13-17 October.

ACE’s corporate social responsibility efforts focus on supporting local communities in which employees live and work. Since 2012, the Regional ‘Day of Service’ has been annual event for employees in Asia Pacific to engage in a diverse range of local community projects which align with ACE’s overarching philanthropic support for improving education and health, alleviating poverty and saving the environment. This year’s ‘Day of Service’ activities comprise environmental conservation; meals preparation and restoration of premises for the underprivileged; as well as blood donation drives. The participating countries include Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Kick-starting the regional ‘Day of Service’ on 4 and 9 October, ACE’s operation in Malaysia organized visits for 120 employees to the Cheshire Home for permanently disabled individuals who do not have the means to support their daily living. In addition to managing various maintenance works at the Home’s grounds in the states of Penang and Selangor, ACE’s volunteers delivered daily necessities to the residents and engaged with them in dialogue, games and entertainment. Following that on 10 October, 30 volunteers from ACE in Vietnam paid a visit to Christina Noble Children’s Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City where they spent quality time with and distributed gifts to over 170 underprivileged children.

Mr. Juan Luis Ortega, Regional President of ACE’s general insurance operations in Asia Pacific, said, “Corporate social responsibility is an integral part of ACE. I’m very heartened to see the high levels of enthusiasm and determination from our colleagues as they go about organizing their respective community outreach projects as part of the Regional ‘Day of Service’ which is into its third year. By working hand in hand with their local charitable partners to ensure that the philanthropic activities are customized according to their needs, our colleagues have clearly demonstrated the ‘can do’ attitude that is the hallmark of ACE.”

Mr. Kevin Goulding, Regional President of ACE’s life operations in Asia Pacific, added, “It is encouraging to see over 1,000 ACE employees across Asia Pacific bringing to life some 20 meaningful projects through active volunteerism. We recognize that our business is not simply about providing financial protection solutions to our customers, but also about having a strong sense of responsibility in giving back to the local communities in which we operate.”
