Charles Cassar, Founder of local anti-money laundering (AML) and compliance service provider Shoulder Compliance, revealed that his company “made a contribution” to Jacob’s Brew Café – Pay It Forward.
This coffee shops donates a percentage of its revenue to its very own NGO, Survivors Malta, whereby funds collected are used to initiate projects to help families facing trauma.
These projects include ‘Jacob’s Coffee Run’, which delivers free sandwiches and coffees to families in the ITU waiting area at Mater Dei Hospital, and the ‘Reunited Pet Cabin’, a designated room built on the grounds of the hospital where pet visitation and pet therapy are made possible.
“A few weeks back I got to know Sarah Cachia and the lovely people at Jacob’s Brew Café – Pay It Forward,” Dr Cassar wrote.
“Through my company, Shoulder Compliance, we made a contribution to this lovely project (and people). I encourage you to all to do the same, or just go there for a coffee – apart from the project having great heart, the brews are great, service friendly, and Marsascala seafront location gorgeous,” he continued.
Jacob’s Brew also encourages and assists community projects, such as Craft & Coffee For Charity, where donated wool is crafted into crocheted or knitted items to be given away to chosen causes, thus bringing joy to the homeless, the needy, and the sick alike.
The café houses The Tessie Montebello Book Club, where books can be borrowed, swapped, and donated by loyal customers.
