African Unity Life firmly believes in supporting the everyday heroes of this country. This is exactly why we have partnered with the South African Army. During the past few months, we have developed a good relationship with the Special Service Battalion, offering them our full support.  

On 28 September 2018, we sponsored the SA Armour Formation Warrant Officer/Non-Commissioned Skills competition held at the army gymnasium in Heidelberg. The SA Armour Formation Team secured third place and we couldn’t be prouder. It just goes to show how much can be achieved when a group of people work well together as a team. 

The SA Army soldiers risk their lives to keep our country safe and it is definitely in good hands. This is what makes us proud to partner with these everyday heroes. Their values include military professionalism, honour, patriotism and pride. They are committed to the execution of their missions and are a group of competent, dedicated, disciplined, trustworthy and fair individuals who believe in being accountable for their actions.

The SA Army is ethical, honest and transparent. They have a respect for life, property and human dignity. This is why they deserve the support of all South Africans. These people pledge to care for this country and are loyal and selfless in their work.  

An everyday hero is someone who lives their life in service of others and does the right thing, even when it means that they are inconvenienced or they need to put someone else before themselves. They understand the value of life and looking after those around them. And that’s exactly what the SA Army stands for, which is why African Unity Life is happy to support them. 

Their philosophy aligns with ours as it includes being an important role player in the country and continent, and contributing to the betterment of Africa through government initiatives. They act as one and function as a team, which we can definitely relate to. 

Their motto states, "The South African Army trains as it fights and thrives on contemporary and innovative doctrine.” And, as you may know, innovation is at the heart of what we do. Our insurance policies are created with the future in mind. Everything we do at African Unity Life is geared towards being as innovative as possible.  

We partner with organisations and groups which are working towards a better South Africa and want a brighter future. This is why we spend much of our time developing relationships like this. Like the South African Army, we believe in living in service of others. That is why we got into the business of insurance. 

We want to help those around us rest easy knowing that they are protected should anything happen. If you look through our product offerings, you will be able to tell that we want to offer affordable cover to everyday heroes. In addition to this, we aim to educate the everyday hero about making responsible and informed financial decisions. 

Take some time to browse through our website to find news about all of our partnerships and the work we’re doing in different communities in order to support our everyday heroes. For example, we have a partnership with Samaritan’s Feet and have implemented a local Free Financial Education programme.
