Local insurance provider Laferla has presented a charitable donation of €1,200 to Id-Dar tal-Providenza as part of the company’s ‘Dress Down Days’ initiative, through which members of the Laferla team collect funds which are in turn increased by the Directors, and go on to be donated to a charitable institution.
Commenting on the donation, Executive Director Keith Laferla states, “we are committed to continuing to assist and give back to the community whenever and wherever we can,” emphasising the company’s commitment to enhancing their CSR initiatives and encouraging others to do the same.
“We are proud of our team who takes this initiative to heart, showing us that the company’s socially responsible culture is truly a Laferla team trait,” he continues, adding “we have had to adapt our ‘Dress Down Days’ due to COVID-19, as they also formed part of our team-building strategy, yet the core spirit of the initiative which is to collect donations has of course persisted.”
Id-Dar tal-Providenza, the beneficiary of Laferla’s recent donation, provides residential services to persons with disabilities, hosting over 100 individuals of all ages.
