In fact, the word ‘Takaful’ translates to mean ‘guarantee each other (against loss or damage)’. That is the very principle on which we, as a company, operate. Caring for our communities has always been, and will always be our priority, and we will forever strive to uplift the less fortunate and help our fellow Sri Lankans in need.
