Collaboration with Health Equity Initiatives

Refugee communities in Malaysia were severely affected by the COVID-19 lockdowns. Not only were they not able to earn a living, they had no means to protect themsleves from COVID-19 cross-infection that affected everyone. In an effort to create good awareness about good physical hygiene that can help to prevent cross-infection and protect precious lives, Tune Protect collaborated with Health Equity Initiatives (HEI) to deliver 17,500 certified surgical face masks, 350 soap bars and bottles of hand sanitizers to 350 refugees under HEI’s care.

Tune Protect Launches Pro-Health Medical, A New Hassle-Free And Affordable Online, Cashless Medical Insurance

Plan Includes Covid-19 Protection Campaign, Mental Health Support and Allowance for Mosquito-borne Diseases

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 March 2021 – With growing awareness for medical protection, soaring healthcare costs and tightened wallets, Tune Protect Malaysia launched its first online cashless e-medical card, PRO-Health Medical. The cashless medical plan provides hospitalisation and surgical expenses benefits to suit consumers’ lifestyles and budget needs.

William Foo (“William”), Chief Executive Officer of Tune Protect Malaysia highlighted, “Today’s digitally savvy customers thrive on convenience and simplicity. They are health-conscious, sensible and realistic in managing their expenses. These insights spurred the features of PRO-Health Medical as a comprehensive, budget-friendly plan that is easy to understand. Sign-up takes less than 5 minutes and claims are hassle-free via our Tune Protect App which also hosts the e-Medical card for cashless admission.”

Unique to PRO-Health Medical is a year-long mental wellness programme with Naluri for the first 1,000 customers, lump-sum allowance for mosquito-borne diseases, Covid-19 additional medical expenses of up to RM20,000 per diagnosis until 31 December 2021* and a charitable pledge by Tune Protect to Yayasan Chow Kit to provide children from less privileged families with access to healthcare for every policy sold.

“The professional overall mental health and lifestyle coaching by Naluri is especially timely given the pressures of keeping up with the “new” norm. Millennials are health conscious and goal driven. If their goal is to lose that 3 kgs they gained while working from home, or to learn how to balance work-life pressures, our programme with Naluri will give them that added assurance and support,” added William.

* For customers who purchase PRO-Health Medical in the month of March 2021

Features of PRO-Health Medical
The e-Medical Card provides customers coverage for hospitalisation and surgical expenses including in-patient, daycare surgical procedures and outpatient treatments expenses due to illnesses and accidents. Other benefits include the zero deductible feature which means that the customer does not have to pay upfront before receiving treatment, an e-Medical Card for a cashless admission at more than 150 hospitals across
Malaysia and reimbursement for alternative and chiropractic treatments post hospitalisation.

PRO-Health Medical can be purchased by first time medical insurance customers or as a supplement to customers’ existing medical coverage. There are four plan types with Annual Limits ranging from RM30,000 to RM150,000 to choose from according to customer’s needs. A unique feature of this product is that it does not have a Lifetime Limit, which means that the Annual Limit is reinstated year-on-year.

PRO-Health Medical can be purchased by downloading the Tune Protect App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. It can also be purchased from www.tuneprotect.com.

The online medical insurance is available for Malaysians and non-Malaysians who legally reside in Malaysia, aged 18 years old to 45 years old and can be renewed up to the age of 65 years.

Health Segment Aligned to Tune Protect’s Strategic Direction
“The Health segment is one the main business pillars for Tune Protect going forward. The impact of recent global events has increased the awareness and interest in medical insurance especially amongst millennials and Gen Z. We believe this market segment will grow rapidly,” said Ben Assanasen, Tune Protect Group Health Lead.

PRO-Health Medical signals the start of engaging millennials through the digital space via education and raising awareness of health care at a young age. We want to bring Health to the masses, especially to the millennials segment as they are currently underserved and underinsured,” Ben added.

PRO-Health Medical and Yayasan Chow Kit
In conjunction with the PRO-Health Medical launch, Tune Protect is joining hands with Yayasan Chow Kit (“YCK”) for its children’s health fund, Madhya’s Gift. Tune Protect pledges to contribute RM6 to this fund for every policy sold until 31 December 2021. Madhya’s Gift was set up by YCK to provide healthcare to children from less privileged families who are in need of medical treatment.

The YCK and Naluri initiatives are part of Tune Protect’s sustainability commitment under the health pillar and PRO-Health Medical is the first product to introduce better access to healthcare to those who need it. This sustainability commitment will continue in future online launches.

Emergency Donation to Yayasan Chow Kit

Tune Protect donated funds for the emergency hospitalization and surgical fees of a refugee youth who needed emergency medical attention. The victim suffered serious fractures and major skin lacerations to his head. He also suffered a concussion and had no recollection of how he was injured. Refugees do not have access to medical care and treatment like citizens do for financial and legal reasons. In a show of compassion and love for our fellow human being of a totally different nationality, race and background, Yayasan Chow Kit voluntarily took this refugee under their wing and committed to settling his bills in full. The surgery was successful and the refugee is recovering from his injuries. This is the actual photo of the refugee resting after the operation. His face is not visible to protect his identity and privacy.

Tune Protect

In a separate incident, a massive fire ravaged several homes in Chow Kit area. One of the children under Yayasan Chow Kit’s Care was severely affected by the loss caused by the fire after it destroyed the few things her family owned. Tune Protect stepped in to provide a cash donation to help sustain the family for a while to help them get back up on their feet again.

Tune Protect

The friendship between Tune Protect and Yayasan Chow Kit began in 2018 when we donated funds to repair the major roof leaks that hampered safety, lessons and activity at YCK’s Pusat Aktiviti Kanak-Kanak. Under our “Sponsor A Kid Back to School” initiative, we also donated full set of school unforms for the children. Then in 2019, Tune Protect collaborated with COBRA Rugby Club Malaysia to bring the children PROBRATS rugby training.

Wish Upon a Christmas Star

Making the Christmas Wish of 123 Orang Asli Families Come True

Project Frankenstein

Tune Protect learnt from the Tune Protect Orang Asli Bamboo Straw Enterprise entrepreneurs that their fellow villagers in Rompin and Bahau in Negeri Sembilan wished for essential food items (Christmas Stars) for Christmas. Malnutrition is a problem plaguing the Orang Asli everywhere and so we sprang into action to rally staff to donate rice, flour, cooking oil, sugar, salt and nutritious beverage for 123 Orang Asli families; 95 for the villagers in Rompin and another 28 for the villagers in Bahau. Our staff from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Malacca, Kuching and Adelaide, Australia pitched in to donate Christmas Stars and watched their names appearing on our Virtual Christmas Tree above! After just 8 days, we were ready for Santa to deliver the “Christmas Stars” to the villagers.

Tune Protect

On 21st December, representatives from Majlis Belia Malaysia and Majlis Belia Orang Asli Malaysia extended their appreciation to all of us at Tune Protect when they collected the Christmas Stars from our corporate office. All 123 “Christmas Stars” were then loaded into “Santa’s Sleigh” that was parked neatly by the side of the building.

Tune Protect

“Santa’s sleigh” safely delivered the Christmas Stars into the hands of the villagers who followed established COVID-19 SOPs.

Tune Protect

Tune Protect also donated several boxes of pre-loved items that our staff donated to the villagers.

Tune Protect

And so the villagers thanked Tune Protect, Majlis Belia Malaysia and Majlis Belia Orang Asli Malaysia for making a meaningful difference that Christmas. The “Wish Upon a Christmas Star” Initiative was reported in the New Straits Times, Malaysian Business Online and the Malaysian Insurance Institute Publications. This initiative was in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 promoting good Health and Well-Being.

Tune Protect

Kuala Lumpur, 4 January 2021 - Bringing the Christmas spirit of giving last year, Tune Protect Group Berhad (“Tune Protect” or “Company”) fulfilled the wishes of two Orang Asli communities through its ‘Wish Upon A Christmas Star’ initiative that provided essential food items to 123 families from two Orang Asli villages in Negeri Sembilan. Collaborating with Majlis Belia Orang Asli Malaysia (“MBOAM”) and Majlis Belia Malaysia (“MBM”), Tune Protect rallied a donation drive among its employees for essential food items for a total of 95 families in Kampung Batu Peti, Rompin, and 28 families in Kampung Jeram Padang, Bahau, both in Negeri Sembilan.

Tune Protect champions the idea of assisting Orang Asli youth to venture into entrepreneurship to attain financial independence by. Tune Protect organizes bootcamps that teach basic financial knowledge and skills necessary for entrepreneurship and to make a living. However, the Orang Asli communities have not been spared of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in response to their appeal for assistance, Tune Protect shifted its gears to contribute the essentials requested during the festive season to lift their spirits and help to see them through tough times brought on by the pandemic.

Many Tune Protect work-from-home staff in Klang Valley, as well as those located in different parts of Malaysia, including East Malaysia and even in Australia, responded speedily to the 7-day donation drive organised during this ongoing Conditional Movement Control Order to quickly deliver essential food items to the Tune Protect Headquarters in Wisma Tune, Damansara Heights to help the Orang Asli villagers. The essential food items donated include rice, wheat flour, cooking oil, sugar, salt and a nutritious beverage, were delivered and handed to the villages by MBM right before Christmas.

Youth from these two villages attended Tune Protect’s Orang Asli Financial Literacy, Empowerment & Entrepreneurship Programme (FLEE), which was initiated in 2018. The FLEE programme has been an ongoing initiative by Tune Protect to introduce inspirational and practical training for the Orang Asli communities with a mission to help them flee aimlessness, joblessness, poverty and social ills.

“Staying true to one of our core values, ‘Better Together’, the spirit of coming together as one has never been stronger here at Tune Protect. It is heartwarming to see the response from our people, joining forces for this cause and showcasing the true spirit of Christmas. We take pride in our FLEE programme that provides Orang Asli youth with the means for them to sustain their livelihoods, but this time around, we responded to their wish to have basic food essentials by providing them with what they need most in times of the pandemic,” said Yap Hsu Yi, Chief - People & Culture of Tune Protect.

The FLEE Programme is a 3-phase programme which consists of boot camps that are organised in collaboration with MBOAM which welcomes the participation of Orang Asli youths from any tribe, village and state who want to explore entrepreneurship and bring it back to their villages to inspire other youths as well. A total of four Orang Asli businesses were successfully registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia as a result of FLEE. They are OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise by the Semelai entrepreneurs from Negeri Sembilan, OA Beauty by Jahut entrepreneurs from Pahang, OA Asli Zara Enterprise by Semai entrepreneurs from Perak and EBalar Handicraft by the Temiar entrepreneurs from Kelantan.

FLEE is a flagship programme by Tune Protect that is in line with the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) Framework with three pillars that promote Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Protection. Tune Protect seeks to meaningfully assist dependent and underserved communities within its reach under the CSR framework, with and the Orang Asli communities as the beneficiaries of the FLEE programme.

Sponsor Bake with Dignity

Tune Protect Sponsors Bake with Dignity Bakers with EasyCare Personal Accident Coverage worth up to RM500,000

Project Frankenstein

Tune Protect sustained the sponsorship of the EasyCare Personal Accident Insurance for differently-abled bakers employed by Bake with Dignity. Under the ”Sponsor Bake with Dignity” initiative that began in 2019, Tune Protect provided complimentary Personal Accident coverage for bakers with Autism, Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and other learning conditions. Tune Protect also caters from Bake with Dignity occasionally because these hearty bakers can bake a wide variety of super-delicious cakes, quiche, salted caramel fudge brownies and cookies. They can also prepares jams, roasted nuts and sauces.

Tune Protect

According to Bake with Dignity’s Co-Founder Ms. Pang Hin Yue (Ms. Pang), the sponsorship was very well-received by the bakery and the parents/guardians of all the bakers because Tune Protect’s PA coverage for the differently-abled is the only PA coverage they have had in all their lives. Oriental Daily News could not resist publishing an article about this sponsorship. The article also educated the public about the good work Bake with Dignity does to provide its bakers with a good sense of achievement in securing employment that is not normally available elsewhere. The newspaper interviewed Yap Hsu Yi, Tune Protect’s Chief – People & Culture, and Yap Hsu Yi and Ms. Pang from Bake with Dignity.

Tune Protect

This sponsorship is in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 that promotes Good Health & Well Being, Goal No. 8 that promotes Decent Work and Economic Growth and Goal No. 11 that promotes building communities.

Upcycling Pre-Loved Denims for Several Good Causes

Project Frankenstein

Tune Protect initiated Project Frankenstein in support of single mothers who are employed by Suri Lifestyle (Suri), a renowned social enterprise that also provides training for them. The project was named after Frankenstein, a famous 1818 novel written by Mary Shelly about Dr. Frankenstein who used his genius to bring a being to life after some heavy duty stitching! Similarly, Suri’s single mothers artistically and skillfully upcycle pieces of pre-loved denims that they stitch into “cool” merchandize such as laptop sleeves, kimonos, tote bags, sandals, purses, just to name a few.

Project Frankenstein
Project Frankenstein

Resolute that the pandemic would not halt Tune Protect’s Community Engagement efforts, the collection of the pre-loved denims began soon after the pandemic was declared. Although most of our staff worked from home during this period, we were still able to collect quite a good number of pre-loved denims for Suri. This CSR initiative was 2-pronged because not only did it provide single mothers with the material needed to sustain their employment it also gave us the opportunity to take climate action and protect the environment too. The donation made it unnecessary for Suri to purchase extra new denims for them to work with.

Not many know that using a single pre-loved denim translates to saving 10,000 liters of water because that’s the amount of water needed to manufacture a single pair of jeans, according to the research and data provided by the United Nations! Therefore, the denim jeans we collected would prevent wasting tens of thousands of liters of water! In addition to saving precious water, using pre-loved denims also fights global warming because less electricity is used and less heat is generated by the manufacturing process. This initiative also prevents bleach and chemical dye from contaminating our precious water sources.

This initiative has also cascaded to the Wisma Tune GoGreen Committee members who have also joined in the effort to collect pre-loved denims for Suri. This initiative is in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 11 that promotes Sustainable Communities and Goal No. 13 that promotes Climate Action.

Tune Protect

This is the 2nd time Tune Protect has collaborated with Suri. In 2019, Suri joined Tune Protect in setting up a stall at Tune Protect’s Eco Bazaar alongside several environmentally conscious enterprises which include The Truly Loving Company, Athena Empowers, Borneo Cocoa and Tune Protect’s Orang Asli entrepreneurs from OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise.

Tune Protect Orang Asli Financial Literacy, Empowerment & Entrepreneurship (FLEE) Programme 2020

Phase 2/2020 – Business Set Up, Business Registration, Environmental Protection & Eco-Bazaar
& Phase 3/2020 – Business Tools, Social Media Marketing, Road Mapping & Computer Literacy

FLEE Programme

The Tune Protect Orang FLEE Programme saw two groups undergoing this bootcamp adventure in February 2020. The first group registered for the 2020 Phase 2 of FLEE were youth from the Temiar tribe in Kelantan. The plan was for them to complete Phase 2 and move on immediately to join OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise for Phase 3. Phase 3 is the final part of the FLEE programme. But first, it was a long bus ride from Kelantan to Kuala Lumpur for Temiar youth, who had to travel through some 60km of dirt road before they could reach the bus station! Things became more comfortable for them when they arrived in Kuala Lumpur.

The bootcamp day began with an exciting MRT adventure with Principal Trainer Nina Othman. and went through the rigorous training of having their business email and Business logo set up and the Business registration at the Companies Commission of Malaysia.

2-day Phase 2 bootcamp, it was time for Phase 3, the final phase of the programme. Remember the pioneer OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise ladies from our 2018 and 2019 bootcamps? They joined the Temiar men for Phase 3, but not before making headlines with their bamboo straws! What a journey it has been for these ladies from Negeri Sembilan!

Tune Protect
RTM produced and aired a documentary about OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise recently. Now Malaysia knows about Tune Protect OA FLEE.

After a 2-day Phase 2 bootcamp, it was time for Phase 3, the final phase of the programme. The OA Bamboo Straw Enterprise ladies joined the Ebalar Handicraft men and it became a truly invigorating and exciting experience for these five participants who also were introduced to the new curriculum that covered Bookkeeping, Costing and Pricing mechanisms, an introduction to the Payment Gateway, Branding and Marketing strategies, the all-important social media tips and ethics, Change Theories and an insight to sustainability and environmental protection.

There were field trips outside the boardroom and training rooms too. There were study visits Central Market and other hotspots to help them familiarize themselves with the learnings derived from these visits.

At the end of the training, the OA entrepreneurs were pleasantly surprised to learn that they would be taking home the laptops they had been using during the bootcamps with compliments of the staff of Tune Protect who got together to raise funds during the 2-In-1 Merdeka Charity Food Bazaar in 2019.

It was a memorable bootcamp, not only because it was a supremely enriching experience. It was also a bootcamp with a difference because of the warmth and respect the young OA entrepreneurs received for the moment they embarked on FLEE.

Tune Protect
A powerful collaboration between Tune Protect, Grow the Goose and Majlis Belia Orang Asli Malaysia
