The campaign for health insurance deal for the Nigerian performing arts industry championed by veteran dancer, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh (Kaffy), has received strategic support from Avon HMO. Through this first-of-its-kind partnership, Nigerian creatives in the dance industry will now enjoy healthcare coverage tailored to their needs through the Kaffy Health Plan by Avon HMO.
If you dance to earn an income, we’ve got good news! From now on, you can focus on your hustle, rest assured that your health is in good hands with the new Kaffy Health Plans by Avon HMO.
The Kaffy plans were born out of conversations between Avon HMO and leading professional dancer, fitness coach and Guinness World Record holder, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh, popularly known as Kaffy. Having seen what professional dancers go through to access healthcare, with some dying needlessly, she was moved to find a solution to protect her own and we teamed up to make it happen.
This collaboration was a very simple choice for us to make. For us at Avon HMO, we believe that everyone regardless of who they are or where they’re from should have a healthcare plan and dancers are not exempt.
A dancer’s body is his or her greatest asset because that is what they make their living with. If anything goes wrong with their health, it automatically affects their ability to make a living and contribute meaningfully to society. Dancers get injuries and as people who express their creativity with their bodies, can be exposed to both physical and mental illnesses which they may not have the money to treat at that moment.
Having a health plan will protect them from the financial inconvenience of paying medical bills of pocket whenever they need healthcare services.
The Kaffy health plans are quite affordable and are available for both individuals and families. The two variants are called the Kaffy Starter and Kaffy Plus Plans. Both family plans provide cover for two parents and up to 4 kids under the age of 18.
