Collection for the Women for Women Foundation
Just before the festive season, we ran a three-week collection drive at our two Malta offices to collect supplies for the Women for Women Foundation. As a result, we managed to collect a substantial amount of toiletry and sanitary items donated by our Betssonites. As a company, we further added €1,000 worth of products and supermarket vouchers.
The Women for Women Foundation was founded as a result of the popular Facebook group, Women for Women, set up in 2015. Through this all female group, many previously voiceless and marginalised women were given a voice and certain previously undiscussed issues were brought to light. Women came together to support one another; and a sense of community and belonging was built. The group now has over 43,000 female members and is living proof that “when women support women, incredible things happen.”
In November 2019, a group of members from Women for Women got together to make this foundation a reality – a foundation that caters specifically for the needs of girls, women, and their children. The Women for Women Foundation manages the Women for Women Social Fund, which supports women and their families through difficult times. They work hand in hand with experts in the fields of domestic violence, homelessness, and mental health to ensure the progression and independence of women in society.
Earlier in 2021, we also made another donation to the Women for Women Foundation [click here to learn more].
