ALL members of the Philippine team seeing action in the ongoing 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Hanoi, Vietnam have been insured until the rest of the year.
This after the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and Pioneer Insurance have partnered to cover all members of the 1,300 national delegation in Hanoi that included not just athletes and coaches, but technical officials and del-egates as well.
“We are grateful to Pioneer Insurance for extending a hand to our national team competing in the Hanoi SEA Games,” said PSC chair William Ramirez.
Mr. Ramirez, Pioneer, Inc. president and chief executive officer Lorenzo Chan, Jr. and Pioneer Insurance president and CEO Atty. Betty Medialdea have signed the year-round group personal accident and accident medical insurance a month just before the Filipinos left for the biennial meet.
Pioneer was also the national team insurer during the 1991 Manila edition.
“We are excited once again to be of service to our country through the field of sports,” said Mr. Chan. — Joey Villar
