With philanthropy, health and wellbeing forming a strong part of the bank's social responsibility efforts, BNF Bank is committed to being of service to the community's social progress and pledges its support by funding local, non-profit organisations that make a difference in people's lives. Hospice Malta, a specialist palliative care provider, is one of the beneficiaries of the bank's Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.

The non-profit organisation provides free of charge patient-centred palliative care, in conjunction with the emotional and psychosocial support to patients and their families at a time when they are most vulnerable and in need of love and support. BNF Bank values Hospice Malta's ongoing commitment to alleviating human suffering through palliative care services to patients and their families.

As part of the bank's monthly #Yourcause initiatives, staff at BNF Bank managed to raise a substantial sum together with an additional donation presented during the local Hospice telethon held earlier on this year. This donation will go towards the funding of St Michael Hospice, a new journey embarked by Hospice Malta for the first Hospice Complex for palliative care services in Sta Venera.  Part of the services will include a day therapy unit, in-patient rooms for short-term stays, outdoor garden areas as well as an education department.

During the formal presentation to Hospice Malta, George Debono, BNF Bank's chief Commercial officer, recognised the efforts made throughout the year by Hospice Malta in providing the care and assistance to sufferers and immediate relatives. "We are very pleased to support Hospice Malta in their mission to provide and promote the highest standard of palliative care for patients together with proper support to their families," Debono said. "Driven by the highest principles of social responsibility, BNF Bank will continue to be very active in this type of initiatives as we thrive to leave a lasting positive impact in our community."
