Mapfre Mid­dle­sea sup­ports ini­tia­tive to cre­ate aware­ness about men­tal health and bul­ly­ing

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

Mapfre Mid­dle­sea is sup­port­ing lo­cal the­atre group Dwal Ġodda, on their quest to raise aware­ness about men­tal health and bul­ly­ing.

In their lat­est pro­duc­tion Kulħadd iħokk fejn jieklu, the the­atre group aimed to em­pha­sise the long-term dam­age caused to in­di­vid­u­als who are vic­tims of bul­ly­ing, ridicule, ne­glect and iso­la­tion. It also aimed to make the au­di­ence re­flect on their past ac­tions and on whether they too have acted as bul­lies at some point in their lives.

In the run-up to the show, Dwal Ġodda met with a num­ber of NGOs that work on such causes, to bet­ter un­der­stand this phe­nom­e­nan and to send out a clearer, bolder mes­sage. The show took place in Għargħur be­tween 23 and 24 Novem­ber.

Dwal Ġodda was set up in 1970, and in the past years, has put up a num­ber of pro­duc­tions writ­ten by es­tab­lished writ­ers such as Fran­cis Ebe­jer and Joe Frig­gieri, among oth­ers. It has gained most of its pop­u­lar­ity thanks to the in­no­va­tive Palm Sun­day street the­atre per­for­mance which it puts up an­nu­ally.

“It is our plea­sure and duty to raise awar­ness to such im­por­tant is­sues. Dwal Ġodda has al­ways been at the fore­front to cre­ate the­atre pro­duc­tions that con­vey a strong mes­sage,” said Ana Zam­mit Munro, chief of­fi­cer Mar­ket­ing at Mapfre Mid­dle­sea.
