AIA Donates HK$30 Million to Yan Oi Tong Supporting 10,000 Elderly and Underprivileged in a Time of Critical Need

1 March 2022
AIA is making a HK$30 million donation to Yan Oi Tong through AIA Foundation to offer emergency support to the elderly and the underprivileged who are impacted by the pandemic. The donation will support the "Fighting the Virus" Programme of the "Yan Oi Tong Love Elderly Card" Scheme to provide prompt and targeted support for 10,000 elderly living alone and the underprivileged. Apart from distributing pandemic care packs, Yan Oi Tong will also provide them with various timely support, including medical services, home care services, and purchase of health products and daily necessities for home delivery, to ensure their critical needs are duly met amid the pandemic.


Mr. Alger Fung, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong & Macau and Director of AIA Foundation, said, "The fifth wave of COVID-19 has dealt a severe blow to the community. AIA fully understands that the elderly and underprivileged are among the most vulnerable segments. We are therefore making a donation to Yan Oi Tong via AIA Foundation to provide 10,000 elderly and disadvantaged people with concrete and timely support, and to prove that they are not being neglected. Deeply rooted in Hong Kong, AIA will closely monitor the development of the pandemic and introduce anti-COVID measures in a timely manner to support the general public on all fronts. Despite the current raging situation, we believe that by standing together, we will rise to the challenge and come out stronger. Every cloud has a silver lining."


AIA has already introduced a number of anti-COVID support initiatives earlier. These include implementing a Special Claim Arrangement for Hospital Cover1 for eligible customers diagnosed with COVID-19, extending the Cover to include the community treatment facilities designated by the Hospital Authority2; offering "Telemedicine Service"3 to selected customers, staff and financial planners in Hong Kong; and providing Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) Kits to all financial planners and staff based in Hong Kong. The Company will introduce more support measures in a timely manner in response to the development of the pandemic and the needs of different sectors of the community.
