Middlesea Group assists in the restoration of Majjistral Park

A group of Middlesea Insurance and MSV Life employees recently planted a number of trees at the Majjistral Park in Mellieha as part of the Group’s corporate social responsibility programme.

During working hours, members of staff of the Middlesea Group helped to rehabilitate the Wied ta’ Rdum area in the park by removing dead trees and branches, restoring rubble walls, the installation of watering systems and the planting of 200 trees including olive and carob trees.

Alfredo Munoz, Middlesea Insurance’s President and CEO, who also attended the tree planting event expressed his strong support for this initiative. “As part of our CSR programme we believe in investing both in our employees and the environment they inhabit. Such initiatives enable us to put our values into action.”

David Curmi, CEO of MSV Life added, “It gives us a lot of satisfaction to enable our employees to do their part in improving our environment. We believe that being socially responsible is a key element to any business’s success.”

Middlesea Group also presented a donation to Carmen Sammut, Chairperson of the Heritage Parks Federation.
