Our aim is to identify NGOs that in some way address a health issue with special attention paid to children and youth. Obviously, when we talk about health, we are looking at both physical and mental issues.
One such NGO with whom Prohealth has decided to partner over the coming years is Beating Hearts. This is a voluntary non-profit making organisation that provides support for children with Congenital Heart Defects, and their families. Sharing of experiences, information and advice to improve the management of problems are a mainstay of Beating Hearts’ role. Needless to say, support (of all aspects) and the promotion of the awareness and general education regarding the existence and needs of such people, are also very high on the agenda of Beating Hearts role in Maltese society.
Prohealth has teamed up with Beating Hearts by sponsoring and investing in a number of fund-raising initiatives and equipment needed by these patients. Clearly, we will continue to do so in the coming years.
