Hospice Malta has launched its annual Sunflower Campaign fundraiser for 2021; a call to the general public to help raise funds for the NGO that provides free palliative care.
The NGO reports that in 2020 more than 1,300 patients and their families benefitted from Hospice services. Hospice offers tailor made care plans designed around each patient’s needs and includes continuous medical, psychological, social, and spiritual support delivered through a multidisciplinary team of professionals. The provision of such services is completely free of charge and thus rely heavily on public support.
Leaflets with information about the campaign, as well as details on how to donate, are being distributed to all households in Malta and Gozo.
The general public is being urged to help raise funds and make a difference in the lives of so many patients and their families. Information on the various modes for donations is below:
