The Melita Foundation has sponsored the purchase of computer equipment which children currently living at a Fondazzjoni Sebħ residence will use for their studies. This donation has helped the children to stay connected with their peers and to continue with their education during the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Simon Montanaro, Chief Technology Officer at Melita Limited and Vice Chair of The Melita Foundation, said, “Fondazzjoni Sebħ coordinates support given to children living in care homes away from their families or in shelters for victims of domestic violence, doing a remarkable job of helping these children overcome very difficult situations and preparing them for an independent life. One of The Melita Foundation’s pillars is to help children acquire the skills they need to succeed. Therefore, it goes without saying that we are committed to helping these children who have had a difficult start in life.”
The Melita Foundation was established in February 2020 with an initial donation of €500,000 from Apax Partners, owners of Melita Limited until May 2019. With the full support of EQT, the company’s current owners, all the Foundation’s expenses are being funded entirely by Melita Limited. This means that 100 per cent of the funds available to the Foundation are being used to support projects.
