Let’s See Altogether!

Let’s See Altogether!

We strongly believe in giving back to the society.

For every risk assessment we contribute part of our fees to the Eyes for Africa (EFA) - a not-for-profit, non-governmental, non-denominational, sight-restoring charitable foundation that makes a difference by treating preventable blindness.

As part of our claim to “Let You See”, we sponsor cataract surgeries and intraocular lenses in a sight-restoring expedition held in Dhebti, a small village near Metehara in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia.

We do not just let the insurance industry see, we let the world see.

Let’s See Altogether!
