11 animal organisations benefit from €8,000 raised during ‘A Night at the Palace’
A number of animal organisations benefited from around €8,000 in donations raised during ‘A Night at the Palace’ event. During the presentation of donations to these organisations, Prime Minister’s wife Dr Lydia Abela said that she is convinced that the funds will be fully used and stressed that her work will continue to focus on innovative projects aimed at improving the quality of life.
Eleven organisations benefited from the event held by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra at the Girgenti Palace.
Rosalind Agius, a representative of the ‘Assoċjazzjoni tal-Annimali Abbandunati’, spoke on the importance of such initiatives. “This donation means a lot because we have many dogs to care for at the sanctuary and for the neutering campaign. It means a lot that Mrs Abela is giving importance to animal organisations because animals deserve the importance in our society…it is a nice gesture”.
During the presentation ceremony, Dr Lydia Abela said she is convinced that the funds will be used in the best possible way by the NGOs, who work very hard in the field of animal protection.
“Entrance for the event was free, however donations were given by the audience. Thanks to the €8,000 donations and your generosity I look forward so that ‘A Night at the Palace’ will be organised again next year in aid of animal organisations”.
Dr Abela stressed that she will continue to focus on sectors that improve the quality of life of present and future generations, through innovative projects for improving the environment, among others.
