Watch: Help raise money for a newer and bigger DAR Bjorn

A marathon will be organised on Sunday to raise funds for a new care home

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

On Sunday, 27th September, DAR Bjorn will organise a telethon in order to raise funds to build a new care home. The cost of DAR Bjorn amounts to €5 million. Until now, more than €3 million have been raised, however, in order to make this dream come true, Bjorn needs support.

The newer and bigger DAR Bjorn, by ALS Malta, located in Żebbuġ – Malta, will provide more specialised beds for patients, across 7 floors.

DAR Bjorn houses not only ALS patients but also those suffering from MS and other neurological disorders. Currently, there are more than 50 people on the waitlist to enter DAR Bjorn in Qormi. Yet, DAR Bjorn can only host 13 patients, who are given free, 24/7 medical assistance. Seeing the large number of people that require this type of medical assistance, a newer and bigger DAR Bjorn becomes vital at this stage.

Despite the fact that this year has been a strenuous year for all, Bjorn Formosa’s resilience has prevailed having one main goal in mind; to raise money for a newer and bigger DAR Bjorn.

The telethon will be televised from midday till midnight on local TV stations: TVM, TVM2, One, Net, and Fliving.
