The HSBC Malta Foundation has donated €5,000 to Fondazzjoni Sebħ to help it provide psychological assistance to children and adults recovering from multiple traumas.
Such help forms an integral part of an array of services provided by Fondazzjoni Sebħ aimed at establishing a nurturing environment that promotes emotional growth and resilience so people can reach their full potential, regardless of the challenges and difficulties they may be facing. Currently, Fondazzjoni Sebħ is offering care to 37 children who live in residential care in a safe, loving and nurturing environment, and to 7 women and their children in the residential shelter and after care service, for survivors of domestic violence.
Yvonne Mallia, Director of Fondazzjoni Sebħ, said: “The foundation’s services rest on three main pillars: children in care services, domestic violence services, and family and community services. Thanks to the HSBC Malta Foundation’s help, we can offer extended therapeutic support to people in need of our services.”
Caroline Buhagiar Klass, Head of Human Resources and Corporate Sustainability at HSBC Malta said, “The HSBC Malta Foundation has placed special importance on supporting foundations who work on assisting the most vulnerable in our communities. Fondazzjoni Sebħ does amazing work, particularly with children who have suffered a great deal, and we are committed to supporting this work which will also deliver a broader positive social impact.”
