Med Bank buys furniture for youngster housing
Mediterranean Bank has presented furniture purchased with proceeds raised during a campaign late last year to St Joseph Home and Conservatorio Vincenzo Bugeja.
Last December, the bank made a contribution to a fund for every new account opened.
The initiative raised enough funds to purchase several items.
St Joseph Home received a new kitchen and two sofas for its independent living project for eight boys aged over 15. They were handed over to Fr Frankie Cini.
Conservatorio Vincenzo Bugeja’s Kevin Magri was presented with a 40-inch TV, four sofas, six wardrobes and two wall units for the project’s use.
St Joseph Home also accommodates younger boys who cannot be with their families over the weekend. Furnished with a kitchen and laundry, the autonomous housing is situated within the home’s grounds and provides adolescents with study space.
Conservatorio Vincenzo Bugeja incorporates Joan Antide Home and Programm Fejda, residential homes for girls aged between 11 and 19 who face social difficulties. The facilities are designed to help them mature into independent adults with broader and healthier possibilities for their future.
