“At AIA, we’re committed to making a difference in people’s lives, including through initiatives that help local communities and society more broadly,” said Damien Mu, chief executive, AIA Australia and New Zealand. “In times like these, it’s important to rally together as a community, and it’s heart-warming to see the outpouring of support and assistance that’s being delivered for people and communities across the East Coast of Australia in response to the bushfires. The days, weeks, and months ahead will be challenging for impacted communities. We want to do our part in some small way by providing financial support for our customers when they need it most.”
