FIMBank Supports Pink October Campaign

31.10.2018

FIMBank has supported breast cancer awareness through Pink October donation initiatives. Over the past weeks, employees of the Bank have been encouraged to purchase Pink October ribbons and trolley coin keychains. The money collected will be used to aid the Action for Breast Cancer Foundation, a voluntary organisation that is campaigning for a quality assured service in order to diagnose and treat breast cancer in Malta.

“As a Malta-based financial institution, we are determined to contribute to the wellbeing of the local community by providing our input to this initiative. Awareness and appropriate action are critical for the survival of diagnosed breast cancer patients. We are pleased to do our part alongside other organisations who are donating. Such activities dovetail with the Bank’s mission and values.  As breast cancer is the most common form of cancer and accounts for the largest number of cancer-related deaths in women in Europe, FIMBank continues to emphasise the importance of awareness and regular check-ups. Such screening has also been included in our employees’ health benefits.” said Christine Coleiro, Group Chief Human Resources Officer at FIMBank.

Such donations allow the Foundation to continue building on the remarkable work undertaken thus far. The Foundation uses such donations to organise awareness programmes for both individuals and health care professionals, to strengthen everyone's awareness on the dangers of cancer and its repercussions.
