Mapfre Insular, one of the leading and stable non-life insurance industries in the country, ended the year with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) campaign for the Chosen Children Village last December 2008.

The company successfully launched an annual Milk Donation Campaign among its employees for the Village’s children in 2007. Employees pledged monthly donations, which were collected through salary deduction. The setup allowed the entire Mapfre Insular community, along with its provincial branches, to participate in this CSR endeavor. The company closed 2008’s donation campaign with more than a hundred milk cans plus other pertinent supplies such as rice, clothes, medicines, and other in-kind donations.

Located in Silang, Cavite , the Chosen Children Village is a community specifically established for mentally and physically challenged children abandoned by their families. Founded by Lita Fullerton in 1989, Chosen Children Inc. cares for 78 children within the Village. Aside from providing a family setting that allows the children to experience emotional support as they grow up, the Village also develops educational and specialized therapy programs to enhance the potential of each child.

As a non-profit community, the Village relies on donations and child sponsorship programs to sustain its level of care and development for the children and to continue its mission of reaching out to abandoned special children.

Mapfre Insular has been conducting its Milk Donation Campaign since 2007, supporting one of the most important sustenance needed by the children inside the Village. In addition, Mapfre Insular also sponsors the education of five children from Chosen Children Village .

In the current economic climate, Mrs. Fullerton expressed her concern for sustaining the Village through sponsorship and campaigns. ”Donations have substantially declined this year and we understand that people are prioritizing their own necessities first.” Fullerton said.

However, despite these tough times, Mapfre Insular continues with its social service by reaching out to these special children and continuously enriching their lives for a better future.
