As communities and businesses settle into a new normal, and the profound implications of the pandemic continue to be seen and felt, local companies like GasanMamo Insurance are also stepping up with a stronger corporate social responsibility strategy. As an organisation with a long history of CSR, GasanMamo Insurance has always striven to support vulnerable communities as well as Malta’s heritage. During these challenging times when businesses are really feeling the pinch, the insurance company is ensuring that its CSR strategy offers the right support to those who need it most ]
The global pandemic has given rise to newly exposed communities that have been directly impacted by this pandemic and that are not all necessarily very visible. This has resulted in NGOS and foundations coming under increased financial pressure and demands from existing and new communities.
As a regular supporter of the Richmond Foundation, GasanMamo Insurance has always endeavoured to support mental health issues, even offering free sessions to their staff. Now they are stepping in to donate a substantial sum to the Foundation’s recently launched initiative, the gift of therapy, which aims to provide a sympathetic ear and professional help to those who need it but cannot afford it. With this donation the Foundation will be able to offer an additional fifty free sessions to those who are in great need. The insurance company has also reached out to Dar tal-Providenza, with a monetary donation which has enabled this residential home to purchase quite a number of forehead thermometers to be used on all persons entering the homes. This donation has also enabled the home to buy smart phones for all residents enabling them to communicate with relatives and management in a safe virtual manner.
“We wanted to make a direct impact on those who needed it most,” said Julian Mamo. “This is an all-hands-on-deck situation and now more than ever we need to pull together to help those who are struggling more than others during this difficult time”
