Crane Currency Malta Makes Donations to Three Local Charities
Crane Currency Malta recently donated a total of $15,000 to three local charitable institutions: Id-Dar tal-Providenza, Puttinu Cares and Hospice Malta. This was made possible through the Crane Fund for Widows and Children – a global initiative to charitable organizations that provide direct assistance to underserved populations in the communities where Crane Co. operates. Each Crane site is encouraged to nominate the causes they wish to support, and these are approved by a selected committee within Crane Currency.
Id-Dar tal-Providenza offers residences and community homes for persons with disabilities in a family-like environment which enhances and maximizes their abilities with a view to ensuring their full participation in society. It also offers respite services to families of persons with disabilities, to enable the disabled family member to continue to live within their family.
Puttinu Cares is a cancer support group that offers a holistic approach to the care for families with children suffering from cancer. At the children’s oncology ward at the Mater Dei Hospital, the professional staff work hand in hand with the volunteers of Puttinu Cares, who are always willing to provide whatever is needed for the children and their respective families going through this very difficult period in their lives.
Hospice Malta’s primary role is to provide and promote palliative care for persons with cancer, motor neurone disease, end of life respiratory, cardiac and renal disease. Hospice Malta also helps and supports the respective families of these patients.
