This campaign focuses on providing the right kind of protection for people to stay at home and provide them with much-needed health and hygiene essentials. Meanwhile, at the same time, FWD Life also keeps educating the public on financial literacy and providing the right kind of insurance protection so they can better manage their finances during this unprecedentedtime.
As part of this campaign, FWD Life collaborates with SOS Children’s Village, a non-profit social organization providing children who have or are at risk of losing parental care. In Indonesia, there are more than 4,500 children in more than 2,400 families spreading in 60 communities in 10 different locations affected by this pandemic. On average, one family needs Rp1 million per month to fulfill basic needs such as food and hygiene. With ‘Kolaborasi Untuk Berbagi’ campaign, FWD Life aims to ensure that every child affected by this situation, continue to get their rights through direct assistance programs and donations.

FWD Life President Director Anantharaman Sridharan said, “The impact caused by this pandemic is not only health, but many families are unable to meet basic needs because of physical distancing that has an economic impact. As a brand that believes in celebrating living with ‘care’ as one of its values, through ‘Kolaborasi Untuk Berbagi’, we encourage people to be more involved in helping others, especially underprivileged communities and their families. Therefore, we are honored that we can collaborate with SOS Children’s Village for this good cause in celebrating kindness and positivity during this challenging time.”
In addition to the initiative, during Ramadan, FWD Life also creates a Care Package consisting of health and hygiene essentials such as face mask and hand sanitizer. NUVO Hand Sanitizer will distribute 30,000 bottles of NUVO Hand Sanitizer to customers, partners, and employees in effort to provide the community and their families protection, a feeling of safety and security.
FWD Life Chief Marketing Officer Maika Randini said, “With the government’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we believe it is more important than ever to encourage people to take care of their health and hygiene. Therefore, we want to spread kindness through the collaboration with NUVO Hand Sanitizer as a form of our commitment to provide our customers with protection and encourage them to stay healthy, practice good hygiene, and take preventive measures, such as washing hands regularly.”
