Bupa Arabia has allocated an annual upper limit of SR500,000 ($133,310) for each policyholder covered by a comprehensive insurance program and guided by a specialist support team.

On the sidelines of the event, complete health checkups, covering chronic diseases, dental health and general consultation services, were offered to the orphans.
Bupa Arabia Chief HR Officer Tariq Al-Amoudi said: “Our social responsibility program covers 2,451 orphans to date and includes a wide range of free health insurance services, which is an important part of our strategic plan to support the community, especially those who are in need.”
