The Company for Cooperative Insurance (Tawuniya) organized several awareness events across the Kingdom as part of its “Health and Safety” program. With the aim of promoting a healthy lifestyle in society, Tawuniya provided 6,000 free medical checkups and consultations to individuals at malls in Riyadh, Jeddah and Alkhobar.
A team of physicians, nutritionists and physical education specialists participated in the first phase of the program, which was held at Red Sea Mall in Jeddah, Granada Mall in Riyadh and Al-Rashid Mall in Alkhobar. Mobile medical units set up by Tawuniya provided medical, nutritional and fitness consultations, in addition to free blood pressure and diabetes tests.
Head of Corporate Communications at Tawuniya Ahmed Saeed Al-Ghamdi said: “Tawuniya recognizes the importance of improving the lifestyles of individuals as well as its positive impact on society as a whole. Therefore, Tawuniya’s social responsibility vision aims at enhancing health awareness and facilitating the disposal of bad eating habits to build a healthy society.”
He said the need for these kind of health programs was evident through their interaction with participants in the first phase of the program.
“Tawuniya will continue to organize several events within our ‘Health and Safety’ program initiative targeting other categories of society, such as university students,” Al-Ghamdi added.
The “Health and Safety” program includes a number of innovative initiatives and workshops structured to introduce healthy habits, self-development and personal goals, and encourage savings and personal investments.
The company also launched awareness campaigns about diabetes and breast cancer.
Al-Ghamdi said Tawuniya is involved in a number of social responsibility activities, such as blood donation campaigns, Ramadan food basket, Adahi campaign, visiting orphans on Saudi National Day and supporting Prince Fahd bin Salman Charitable Society for the Care of Kidney Failure Patients (Kelana).
