The Bank of Valletta has presented a sponsorship to the Gozo Branch of the Malta Red Cross Society. The funds will be utilised for the functioning of the new Front Line Ambulance given to the organisation by the Italian Red Cross regional committee for Sicily.
The new ambulance has been fitted with the latest technology including a resuscitation ventilator, vital signs monitor, full body vacuum mattress, body sign board and a carry chair, scoop stretcher, AED and resuscitation kits. This ambulance will complement another ambulance that the organisation has, which also benefited from previous funds donated by Bank of Valletta.
The funds were presented by Jack Theuma, Manager Gozo branch at Bank of Valletta to Prof. Frederick Fenech, President of the Malta Red Cross.
BOV’s support to the Malta Red Cross Society has as its main objective the strengthening of the organisation’s operative network, thus making the services offered by the Malta Red Cross Society more effective. This latest donation will help both in the maintenance and the day to day running of the ambulance.
