Equiom Malta recently organised a trip to the zoo for the children of St. Rita Home orphanage in Tarxien. Staff from Equiom Malta accompanied 13 children from the orphanage to the Wildlife Park in Rabat for the day where the children observed the animals and were treated to lunch.
The team at Equiom Malta also made a donation of €500 to St. Rita Home through a mix of fundraising activities and corporate donations. In addition, they gifted toys to the children in partnership with Playmobil.
Colin Gregory, Managing Director of Equiom Malta commented:
‘I am pleased that we were able to help out in such an important way. Many of these children had never visited the zoo before so it was a great experience both for them and for the staff. I would like to thank the team at Equiom Malta for giving up their free time on a public holiday to make this event happen. Special thanks also to eCabs for providing the transport, Playmobil for the toy donations and the Wildlife Park for entry to the park free of charge for the children. This was a great initiative and I am looking forward to offering more support to St. Rita’s in the future.’
St. Rita Home is an orphanage run by the St. Ursuline Sisters. It is home to 16 local children cared for by four nuns who dedicate their lives to providing a safe and nurturing environment.
