Union Assurance Company has become the first insurance company to back Miss Insurance project with a cash donation. Current Miss Insurance, Brenda Nwakanma, disclosed this to the management of the company during her courtesy visit recently.
She said while her team has received a lot of promises from insurers, it was the first time that a direct donation in cash was made to her pet project by any company and commended the company for their response.
Brenda Nwakanma, Miss Insurance 2009/10 gave out hints on the major and pet projects she wishes to carry out during her tenure as Queen, in her speech during the visit.
Her major project, insurance awareness, came tops as a result ofÂ lack of insurance awareness as a major impediment to the growth of the insurance industry.
Her pet project, an awareness for asthma (an obstructive disease of the airways) is in conjunction with Asthma Relief Campaign Project (ASMACAP), an active non-governmental organization.
