The charity campaign launched as a cooperative effort between Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre and SkinCeuticals has ended successfully, collecting €2400 for Hospice Malta.
On January 16th 2015, President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca inaugurated the SkinCeuticals Charity Event in aid of Hospice Malta and MADV. Persona hosted the event, marking the introduction of some exciting new products to their SkinCeuticals range.
To mark this special evening, Persona donated 20% of proceeds on the night to Hospice Malta together with a donation made to MADV for their efforts towards Skin Cancer Awareness Campaigns. The other part of the SkinCeuticals Charity Campaign lasted all year, with a percentage of 2015 SkinCeuticals Sales going to Hospice Malta.
‘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 care to patients suffering from cancer, motor neuron disease, respiratory, cardiac and renal diseases.’ said Anabel Spiteri, Fundraising Coordinator of Hospice Malta.
Throughout the year, over 1000 patients and their families benefit from Hospice services both during the illness and following the death of a loved one. Patients receive over 7000 visits from Hospice’s team of professionals. Volunteers are also an integral part of Hospice through their contribution in all areas amounting to around 12000 hours of their time each year. Hospice Malta seeks to preserve the independence, dignity and quality of life of patients. Families are provided with an environment where they feel accepted and safe through support and help during the patient’s illness and during the time of bereavement.
Kate Demanuele, General Manager at Persona commented: ‘We are glad we were able to contribute to Hospice Malta’s efforts in caring for patients and their families in their physical, psychological and socials needs. As a patient oriented service provider we understand how much effort goes into giving care to people. Hospice Malta shares our patient-first philosophy and compassionately cares for patients who need it most. We trust Hospice Malta to continue doing excellent work and hope to inspire others to give to charities that can put it to good use.’
