Air Malta as­sists The Malta Com­mu­nity Chest Fund Foun­da­tion

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

Air Malta will again be as­sist­ing The Malta Com­mu­nity Chest Fund Foun­da­tion dur­ing the months of Novem­ber and De­cem­ber.

Dur­ing these months, Air Malta Cabin Crew will be col­lect­ing funds on board the air­line’s flights to­wards this cause.

The Malta Com­mu­nity Chest Fund Foun­da­tion is an or­gan­i­sa­tion aimed at pro­mot­ing sol­i­dar­ity among peo­ple liv­ing in Malta. The Foun­da­tion pro­vides fi­nan­cial, ma­te­rial and pro­fes­sional sup­port to peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dif­fi­cul­ties be­cause of se­vere chronic or ter­mi­nal ill­ness, in­clud­ing can­cer, dis­abil­ity, poverty, un­em­ploy­ment or lack of re­sources, with­out any form of dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Joe Galea, Act­ing Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer said, “Air Malta is a proud sup­porter of the MCCFF. As an air­line we strongly be­lieve in our cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and through­out the years we have as­sisted thou­sands of peo­ple to travel abroad for med­i­cal treat­ment. Our air­craft can carry both stretcher cases and in­cu­ba­tors for new born ba­bies that re­quire ur­gent med­i­cal treat­ment abroad. The MCCFF works hard dur­ing the year to sup­port thou­sands of peo­ple who rely on the gen­eros­ity of the fund to help fam­i­lies pass­ing through dif­fi­cult times. We are happy that with the help of our guests we can con­tinue as­sist­ing this fund with its com­mend­able ini­tia­tives.”

This cam­paign forms part of Air Malta’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives whereby the air­line sup­ports or­gan­i­sa­tions that work hard in the Mal­tese com­mu­nity.

As Malta’s na­tional car­rier, Air Malta is the only air­line fly­ing from Malta that fully sup­ports the lo­cal com­mu­nity in all pos­si­ble ways. No other air­line op­er­at­ing to Malta pro­vides con­tin­ued sup­port to vol­un­tary and non­govern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions like Air Malta.

This ini­tia­tive is also be­ing sup­ported by Sky Gourmet, the air­line’s cater­ing provider.
