Over 2,500 agents nationwide joined Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Life) for its annual Allianz Charity Day 2019 on 25 May 2019.
As part of the event, agents from more than 100 agencies came together to participate in this event by hosting multiple charitable activities across the country simultaneously on the same day. Besides blood donation drives, visits to orphanages, and old folks home as well as breaking fast at charity homes and the distribution of Bubur Lambuk to the public, this year featured some unique events.
Allianz Life Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Gross joined the agents from EAGLE Group for a Shoe Cutting Party at SOLEHOPE, a non-governmental organization that upcycles old jeans into shoes for children in third world countries while FOCUS agency provided donations and volunteered at the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary in Lanchang, Pahang. Meanwhile, in Kuala Lumpur, CSK agency took 40 orphans for a hike at Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) while members from V agency in Johor Bahru organised a charity lunch at Putuo Village, a Buddhist spiritual sanctuary.
“The Allianz Charity Day has become a mainstay on our events calendar. Our aim, as always is to take the opportunity to reach out to those who are less fortunate. We are very thankful to have the support and commitment from our agents who come out every year with fantastic ideas to give back to society. We hope that through these small yet meaningful charitable activities around the country, we will get to spread kindness, love, empathy and joy to those in need.” said Ong Pin Hean, Chief Sales Officer of Allianz Life.
“Acts of kindness should not be limited to a charity event. We hope that an event like this can inspire everyone out there to be a little more generous with their time, effort, and love to those who need it the most,” added Pin Hean.
ACP and CASB agents in Ipoh and MM2 agents in Bukit Mertajam visited orphanages and gave donations in their respective states while DOLLARZ agents in Penang visited a special children’s home and had a meet and greet session with the children.

The Allianz Charity Day has been organised annually since 2014 and encourages and gives Allianz Life’s agency force the chance to contribute to society. The agents devote an entire day carrying out various charitable activities involving children, orphans, old folks and championing other social causes.
