Form 4 Sempreviva of the Agius de Soldanis Girls’ Secondary School, together with their form teacher Mr Micheal Mercieca recently presented a donation of €250 to Mr Carmel Camilleri, a Gozitan represenative of the Puttinu Cares Foundation.
The students decided that, instead of giving each other gifts at Christmas as in previous years, they would make a donation to Puttinu Cares.
The Puttinu Cares Cancer Support Group offers a holistic approach of care for families who have children suffering from cancer. Set up in 2002 by Dr Victor Calvagna and Rennie Zerafa, Puttinu Cares is a haven of solace for families whose children have been afflicted with cancer.
The Puttinu Cares Gozo Committee, would like to give its heartfelt thanks to the students for their contribution, while also encouraging other students to follow their example by helping those in need.
