FIMBank Sup­ports Pink Oc­to­ber Cam­paign

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

FIMBank has sup­ported breast can­cer aware­ness through Pink Oc­to­ber do­na­tion ini­tia­tives. Over the past weeks, em­ploy­ees of the Bank have been en­cour­aged to pur­chase Pink Oc­to­ber rib­bons and trol­ley coin key­chains. The money col­lected will be used to aid the Ac­tion for Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion, a vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion that is cam­paign­ing for a qual­ity as­sured ser­vice in or­der to di­ag­nose and treat breast can­cer in Malta.

“As a Malta-based fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion, we are de­ter­mined to con­trib­ute to the well­be­ing of the lo­cal com­mu­nity by pro­vid­ing our in­put to this ini­tia­tive. Aware­ness and ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion are crit­i­cal for the sur­vival of di­ag­nosed breast can­cer pa­tients. We are pleased to do our part along­side other or­gan­i­sa­tions who are do­nat­ing. Such ac­tiv­i­ties dove­tail with the Bank’s mis­sion and val­ues.

As breast can­cer is the most com­mon form of can­cer and ac­counts for the largest num­ber of can­cer-re­lated deaths in women in Europe, FIMBank con­tin­ues to em­pha­sise the im­por­tance of aware­ness and reg­u­lar check­ups. Such screen­ing has also been in­cluded in our em­ploy­ees’ health ben­e­fits.” said Chris­tine Coleiro, Group Chief Hu­man Re­sources Of­fi­cer at FIMBank.

Such do­na­tions al­low the Foun­da­tion to con­tinue build­ing on the re­mark­able work un­der­taken thus far. The Foun­da­tion uses such do­na­tions to or­gan­ise aware­ness pro­grammes for both in­di­vid­u­als and health care pro­fes­sion­als, to strengthen ev­ery­one's aware­ness on the dan­gers of can­cer and its reper­cus­sions.
