HSBC Malta and HSBC Group Global Contact Centre are launching an initiative to support over 150 men who are currently living in hostels as they are recovering from mental health issues, homelessness, and addiction, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta.

HSBC and its employees will be collecting toiletries and other essentials to help the residents of these hostels, in the run-up to International Men’s Day on 19 November.

“On the occasion of International Men’s Day, HSBC is actively working to raise awareness of men in our society who are facing difficult situations and who need our support,” said Glenn Bugeja, Manager, Corporate Sustainability at HSBC Malta.

“Following the success of a similar initiative which HSBC organised for International Women’s Day—when we supported women facing these same challenges—we are now encouraging employees at the bank, at the HSBC Group Global Contact Centre in Swatar, and the public to join forces and together donate new or second-hand items to help the residents of these hotels with basic daily commodities,” he added.

The organisations being supported through this initiative are Dar Franġisk, Dar Victoria, YMCA – Dar Niki Cassar, Aġenzija Sedqa – Dar l-impenn, and the Richmond Foundation’s facilities in Paola, Qormi, Mosta and Kappara, and Dar Papa Franġisku.

Members of the public who would like to donate and support this initiative are kindly directed to contact Glenn Bugeja on 7900 4308 or Carl Lautier on 9923 2035.
