Gor Mahia FC, Liberty Assurance Company and Tentacle communication has launched Gor Kava Plan, which will focus on giving loved ones decent send off.
The insurance plan designed to benefit the team; the technical bench, the Executive Committee and the larger fan base by lifting off their shoulders the burden of fundraise when deaths occur.
The Gor Kava has three options, which include Member only cover, family cover (member, spouse and maximum of six children) and the parents or parents in law cover.
Head of Bank assurance and Affinity at Liberty Life Assurance Nita Gichure, said that the cover is realistic and meant to benefit Gor players and their fans.
“This cover is something that I do encourage everyone to have. We are ambassadors of changing how football is done in the country, building a fraternity of people who care about each other,” said Gichure.
Gichure gave an example of the 18 players who perished when the Zambia Air Force Buffalo plane plunged into the Atlantic Ocean off the shores of Libreville.
Tentacle Communication CEO, Sam Ochola said that this was a brilliant idea and Gor Mahia fans should embrace it.
“When going out to support Gor, you will be doing so knowing that as a fan you are also protected in case of anything. For a Ksh.800 per annum, you are protected, while your friends and family members are guaranteed that you will never be a problem in the event of a misfortune,” said Ochola.
He warned that life is full of unpredictable events and one of them is death. The financial burden accompanied with the loss of a loved one is even more strenuous leaving the family emotionally and financially drained. Many families are forced to raise funds to cater for funeral expenses.
Gor Mahia chairman, Ambros Rachier said that this was a good deal and thanked Liberty Assurance together with Tentacle communication for having footballers’ interest at heart..
Gor Mahia Football Club is the most decorated and successful club in Kenya after winning their 16th Kenya Premier League (KPL) title 3 weeks ago.
