Ħamrun Ħanin in series of philantropic activities during Christmas festivities
For the second year running, voluntary organisation Ħamrun Ħanin sought to bring joy to some of the most vulnerable members of our society throughout Christmas time, with a number of activities during which it provided financial support while also raising awareness on important issues affecting the community around us.
Over the past few days, members of Ħamrun Ħanin, the social arm of Ħamrun Spartans FC, together with a number of players from the team, including national team player Juan Carlos Corbolan, visited a number of organisations working in our community with different persons in need. These included Dar Kenn għal Saħħtek, Caritas Malta and the Association for Abandoned Animals.
Dar Kenn għal Saħħtek in Mtarfa offers a residential facility and outpatient services for patients with food-related issues, ranging from anorexia to excess obesity. The second visit was held at the Sanctuary of the Association for Abandonded Animals, which gives a home to hundreds of animals, including cats and dogs, that are picked up after being left abandoned on the roads, at times after being victims of cruelty.
The last visit took place at the Caritas centre in Ħamrun, which besides the priceless role it plays in supporting persons struggling with drug-related issues, it is also welcoming scores of persons daily seeking help, whether because of homelessness or because they are unable to provide themselves with a basic meal for the day.
During these visits, a financial donation was given to the respective organisations, while the AAA sanctuary was also provided with a lovely donation of animal food.
Finally, Ħamrun Ħanin, in collaboration with the Ħamrun Spartans FC Daikin Football School of Excellence, also organised quite an impressive collection of gifts, with the partecipation of the children playing their football with this nursery. These gifts were then presented to Dr Lydia Abela as part of the national campaign Rigal b’Imħabba in Castille Place, Valletta. Ħamrun Ħanin expresses gratitude to its partner Alberta Group for supporting it in making these activities possible.
