Dar Bjorn opens its doors for 13 people suffering from ALS

Bjorn Formosa’s dream become a reality last night during the inauguration of Dar Bjorn in Triq il-Kbira, Qormi by the PM Joseph Muscat.

The home will host 13 people who suffer from ALS, a condition which attacks the nervous system. Dar Bjorn has been renovated by means of an investment of €4 million spread over a period of 10 years.  It includes 11 bedrooms and is equipped with complete accessibility and every accessory will function by means of eye contact.  Bjorn Formosa said that part of the money has already been collected, but some funds are still needed for this project.

The PM praised the generosity which Bjorn has shown over the last two years by carrying out this project, which has always been his dream. Dr Muscat said that Bjorn managed to focus on his condition by turning it into his legacy.  He appealed for people to keep donating while added that next year the Government would be passing on €930,000 to the ALS foundation so that the house can continue giving the services it needs for the well-being of the patients.

Dar Bjorn was inaugurated in the presence of a number of dignitaries including Archbishop Charles Scicluna, in a festive atmosphere which included fireworks.
