All aboard!

113 - HSBC Malta treats underprivileged children to a day out at sea - photo 2HSBC Malta Foundation and Captain Morgan Cruises teamed up to offer a full-day boat ride around the Maltese islands to 200 children and their carers from various child-caring institutions.

Departing from Sliema ferries, the boat ride included a day full of activity, a stop for lunch at Comino, and time to enjoy some of the Malta’s most beautiful swimming areas.

“This the tenth consecutive year that we have organised this activity which we believe offers
the children, many of whom are facing serious life challenges, quality time-out to relax and play. We strive to make each year’s outing better than the last with new games and socially oriented activities to engage and entertain everyone on-board,” said Josef Camilleri, Head of Sustainability at HSBC Malta.

“Seeing the joy on the children’s faces during this outing is worth the effort,” said Kevin Zammit Briffa, General Manager from Captain Morgan Cruises.

Over the last decade, the HSBC Malta Foundation donated more than €3 million towards its three central objectives: to improve the quality of life and education for disadvantaged children, to promote and work towards a more sustainable environment, and to preserve Malta’s rich cultural heritage.
