Regional insurer Sagicor recently donated $15,000 to Kids In Need of Direction (KIND), in recognition of World Kindness Day, to aid the charity in hosting activities as part of its World Kindness Month celebrations.

At Sagicor, we are committed to support initiatives that embrace children, as it gives us an opportunity to assist in impacting the future. ”

KIND chairperson Karina Jardine-Scott said, “Having corporate entities like Sagicor partner with us meant that our activities had a wider reach.
