Banif Bank employees have reiterated their commitment to Hospice Malta by giving the Organisation a donation collected through a monthly voluntary contribution scheme, where a small donation is allocated automatically from staff salaries.
The Malta Hospice Movement is a voluntary not-for-profit organisation that provides specialised care for over 1,000 patients and their families. Their multi-professional team aims to address the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs faced by patients with serious illnesses. The donation by Banif’s employees is an acknowledgement of the great work done by Hospice.
Kenneth Delia, General Manager at Hospice Malta, said, “The goal of Hospice Malta is to continue to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. It is thanks to similar acts of solidarity that we have been able to continue with our mission of providing free-of-charge palliative and end-of-life care services on the Maltese Islands for the past 26 years. On behalf of our patients and their families, we would like to show our appreciation to the staff of Banif Bank for the donation.”
“The Bank is very active in its support of the community and these values are clearly shared and internalised by our employees,” said Simon Grech, Head of Corporate Services Department at Banif Bank. “Through this donation and other initiatives, like our monthly Casual Friday collections, our staff are able to contribute to worthy causes in a very tangible way. This, in addition to the Bank’s numerous CSR commitments, helps ensure that our Organisation’s culture is one that promotes solidarity and humanism, which in turn helps foster a sense of community within our own team. We are very pleased to be able to lend our support to Hospice Malta and want to take this opportunity to thank them for the excellent work that they do.”
