HSBC spon­sors an­nual sum­mer camp for chil­dren with di­a­betes

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

More than a dozen boys and girls with di­a­betes en­joyed a thrilling day of ex­plo­ration and learn­ing at Es­plora as part of the an­nual sum­mer camp or­gan­ised by the Maltese Di­a­betes As­so­ci­a­tion.

Spon­sored by the HSBC Malta Foun­da­tion, the day-long out­ing fea­tured ed­u­ca­tional games, sci­en­tific ex­per­i­ments, and play time. This year, the MDA sum­mer camp lasted two days.

The Foun­da­tion also made a do­na­tion to the MDA, un­der­scor­ing its more than 15-year-long sup­port to the non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion.

HSBC CEO An­drew Beane said: “We are de­lighted to con­tinue our part­ner­ship with the Maltese Di­a­betes As­so­ci­a­tion and in par­tic­u­lar sup­port­ing this year’s sum­mer camp where it was fan­tas­tic to see the chil­dren hav­ing lots of fun with new friends while learn­ing how to man­age di­a­betes as part of their day-to-day habits.”

Es­tab­lished in 1981, the Maltese Di­a­betes As­so­ci­a­tion pro­vides its young mem­bers with ed­u­ca­tional talks, fam­ily and ju­ve­nile sup­port groups, week­end live-ins and an an­nual camp for ju­ve­nile and teenage mem­bers.
