What does it mean to be a socially responsible company? For us at Deriv, it means more than just writing a cheque. It means getting involved, getting inspired, and getting to know the people we are helping. That’s why, this year, Deriv Malta started a six-month CSR programme with Puttinu Cares, a leading Maltese NGO that supports children with cancer and their families.
The first step in a six-month CSR journey
The first phase of Deriv Malta’s CSR journey was a hands-on experience at Puttinu Cares’ charity shops. The team swapped their desks for shelves, sorting through donations, arranging items, and serving customers. This gave them a chance to help with some of the fund raising operations of the NGO.
Deriv volunteers also got to interact with Puttinu Cares staff, who shared their stories and passion for the cause. This created a bond between the two organisations and a deeper appreciation for the work they do.
More than just a CSR project for Deriv
Deriv Malta’s CSR journey with Puttinu Cares is not a one-off event. It’s a long-term commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families. In this 6-month programme, the team will participate in various CSR initiatives, from donating essential items and funds, to contributing to the construction of new facilities, to organising uplifting events for the children and caretakers.
This CSR journey is not only about giving back to the community. It’s also about learning from the community, especially from the children and families who face unimaginable challenges with courage and hope. It’s a journey of inspiration, compassion, and change.
