MBR Publications managing director Martin Vella presented to Puttinu Cares representatives a donation of over €1,800 raised during the company's prestigious event Malta's Best in Business Awards, following an initiative conceived by Mr Vella himself to help the Children's Cancer Foundation, as part of MBR Publication Limited's CSR philosophy. Mr Vella also confirmed that MBR Publications will be developing a mobile app for Puttinu Cares in order to help the organisation in its promotion of events and initiatives.
Mr Vella stated that MBR Publications will continue to offer its support to Puttinu Cares: "The company and its employees firmly believe in Puttinu Cares' right cause and we are confident that through the development and inclusion of our new mobile application, the general public will be able to get closer to Puttinu Cares and better understand its important role in our society."
Dr Andrew Decelis, director, on behalf of Puttinu Cares thanked MBR Publications for their initiative and all those companies who contributed with their donation and continuous support during Malta's Best in Business Awards. Dr Decelis said: "Puttinu Cares Foundation funding relies mainly on the annual football marathon and also on the generosity of its benefactors and the public donations it receives to live up to its mission. All income received by the Puttinu Cares Foundation and all expenditure incurred is annually audited and submitted to the Commissioner of Voluntary Organisations."
MBR Publications supplemented its donation by additional funds raised this year through various other activities organised by the company. For the past five years MBR Publications has been supporting other organisations namely L-Istrina and the Malta Community Chest Fund.
