OUTsurance has committed R102 million towards a comprehensive COVID-19 response plan, as part of its Helping SA OUT campaign.


Pretoria, South Africa (31 March 2020) – OUTsurance is helping South Africa out in its greatest time of need with R102 million in support of clients, service providers, the healthcare sector and the Solidarity Response Fund.

OUTsurance salutes the South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, for the courage, conviction and clarity in his address to the nation on Monday, 23 March 2020. OUTsurance is committed to supporting the various initiatives announced by the Government to ‘flatten the curve’ and minimise the impact on our country’s economy as far as possible.

The COVID-19 pandemic has to date infected over 785 000 people globally, resulting in more than 37 000 deaths. With more than two billion people around the world in some form of lockdown or self-isolation, these are unprecedented times.

It is clear that the impact of COVID-19 will be devastating to the economy and to all South Africans, and that its effect will be felt for months to come. With decisive leadership, togetherness and community support, we will emerge stronger.

OUTsurance has committed R102 million towards a comprehensive COVID-19 response plan, as part of its Helping SA OUT campaign.

“This includes relief for OUTsurance service providers, who are impacted by the inability to work, as well as for clients who may experience financial difficulty during this tough time. In addition, we will provide protective equipment for healthcare workers and are making a contribution to the Solidarity Response Fund, announced by the President.”

Details of the plan may be viewed on their website.

“Every aspect of our environment will be affected by COVID-19. Of paramount importance to us is the safety and well-being of our staff and partners who work with us, while making sure that our clients are assisted. To this end, our offices will be closed during the lockdown period, with staff working from home to ensure the continuity of our business. As a major South African financial services company, we have a social responsibility to contribute to the fight against this debilitating virus and its devastating economic impact.” said CEO Danie Matthee.
