We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
Max Life Insurance believes that as a corporate it has a responsibility to engage with the society. This engagement goes beyond providing right products for their needs and being ethical and honest in our business practices. We believe in caring for the society and have decided to focus on providing a safe and secure future to the underprivileged children. Take a look at some of our initiatives:
The immunisation programme:
The company works closely with Max India Foundation, an independent social service organisation of Max India Group. Max Life Insurance’ immunisation programme serves the societal agenda of protecting the next generation of the country against major ailments. The immunisation programme covers vaccines like BCG, Hepatitis B vaccine, Polio drops, DPT, D Tap, Measles vaccine, MMR, Typhoid, DT and TT. From July 2008, since the immunization programme was initiated, till date we have conducted 756 camps, covering 21,799 children.
Artificial limbs and polio calliper camps:
Max Life Insurance and Max India Foundation also organise artificial limbs and polio calliper camps. Through each camp beneficiaries are provided artificial limbs or polio callipers. The company's volunteers help create awareness, manage registration and provide help during the week-long camp where the patients stay till the time they could independently move. In each such camp around 350 beneficiaries are provided artificial limbs. Over the last five years Max Life Insurance in collaboration with Max India Foundation, has organised Artificial Limbs and Polio Callipers camp in Gujarat, Punjab, Uttrakhand and New Delhi. Each year, Max Life also provides artificial limbs to 180 beneficiaries through Kiwanis Club. Till date a total of 3,838 patients have been provided artificial limbs and polio callipers.
The company's volunteers also actively participate in health camps organised in association with Max India Foundation where patients are provided health advice by a team of doctors from Max Healthcare. Till date, 445 multi-speciality camps have been organized benefitting 1, 01,674 patients.
Max Life supports 6 permanent health centres across Punjab, Uttrakhand and Delhi. These health centres provide comprehensive healthcare to communities in surrounding areas and if required refer patients to closest Max Healthcare facilities for surgeries & treatments. Max Life employees also provide monetary and material support during natural calamities.
In FY 2015, Max Life Insurance decided to add village adoption as a key activity in its CSR programme. In the first phase, the company aims to work in the areas of healthcare, sanitation, safe drinking water and environment awareness & protection. Later we want to expand the scope of activities to include vocational training for women, adolescent girls and youth. The company has already initiated work in Dhakrani village in Dehradun district of Uttrakhand.
