Emmanuel Delicata Winemaker has launched the winery’s charity scheme called “Delicata for Good”, under which the company is planning to support a selection of firms and organisations “with one vision in mind and that is to help build a better community by giving back,” according to a press statement sent to Business Malta. The first beneficiary of the scheme is Nature Trust Malta (NTM).
“With the benevolent Delicata for Good project, the winery is committing to a more proactive way of patronage, still inspired by integrity and core family values, but directed towards heightening awareness and donating funds for one truly good cause at a time,” the Delicata winery says in the press statement.
The first beneficiary of Delicata for Good is Nature Trust Malta, a non-profit non-governmental environmental organisation and a privileged partner of World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Nature Trust Malta carries out many laudable projects to conserve the Maltese natural heritage and is in constant need of backing to save species such as the sea turtle, one of the most endangered animals in the world.
The winery is funding the cost of a high-tech tracking device that will get placed on the back of a rescued sea turtle. The turtle will be returned safely to the wild once fully rehabilitated. The device will allow Nature Trust Malta to gain invaluable information about sea turtle migration. The turtle’s journey can then be followed on the Delicata Facebook page. It is envisaged that this will raise public awareness in an effective and enjoyable manner.
The company plans to offer support of all sorts, from food or shelter relief to research scholarships or environmental rehabilitation, water conservation, the fight against illiteracy, disease prevention and increasing pet adoptions, just to name a few in an evolving society, the areas in which one can assist are endless.
For an organisation to make it on to the Delicata for Good list, it needs to be transparently managed and fighting for a just cause that is evidence-backed and relevant.
