ORGANISATIONS WE SUPPORTED IN 2017
As we get close to the end of another year we always look back and treasure the memories we have built during the past 12 months. At the same time, we also stop and think of how others spent their year. Not everyone always gets fantastic years but if we all think of and help one another in our communities, the world would surely be a better place.
At Mvintage we pride into supporting various organisations who dedicate long hours every single week of the year to support others. Here are some of the organisations that Mvintage has supported throughout the year 2017. We encourage you to look into the list below as well as into other fantastic organisations that similarly do great jobs, and support them as best as you can:
1 - ACTION FOR BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION

Action for Breast Cancer Foundation is a Voluntary Organisation that's campaigning for a quality assured service in order to diagnose and treat breast cancer in Malta and Gozo. This initiative includes a screening programme as early detection can lead to more effective treatment and can, therefore, save many more lives.
2 - EUROPA DONNA
The Breast Care Support Group is a member of Europa Donna, the European Breast Cancer Coalition. It was set up to bring about an awareness of breast cancer and breast health in Malta and to support people affected by the disease.
