Four professional service providers, members of the TAP Knowledge Alliance, TAP-K, on Friday presented a donation of €2000 to id-Dar tal-Providenza. The donation was pledged during last year’s month-long exhibition “Floating Bronze” by Austrian sculptor Hubert Flörl at the National Museum of Fine Arts which was organised by the TAP-K under the esteemed patronage of the Austrian Ambassador.
The presentation of the donation at Dar tal-Providenza was made to Fr Martin Micallef, Director of id-Dar tal-Providenza by H. E. Dr. Petra Schneebauer, Ambassador of the Republic of Austria to Malta together with Dr Tonio Fenech, Managing Partner in representation of the TAP-K members who inaugurated this initiative, being lawyers at FFFL, accountants at Capstone Group, corporate finance specialists at RG Capital Advisors and trust and fiduciary consultants at ATCL.
In a brief comment during the presentation, Dr Tonio Fenech said “we are delighted and honoured that Tap-K hosted Mr Flörl’s exhibition as it offered the Maltese public the opportunity to appreciate the art of this talented Austrian artist. However, it is important to note the substantial assistance that was given to this initiative by H.E. DDr. Petra Schneebauer, Ambassador of the Republic of Austria to Malta and all the staff at the Austrian Embassy.”
Dr Fenech also thanked the sponsors for their generous support including Bawag Malta Bank, the Corinthia Group, Pender Gardens, the KDM Group of Companies, Playmobil Ltd and the member firms forming part of TAP-K. Dr Fenech further commented that ”TAP-K members were particularly pleased to report that proceeds from the exhibition made it possible for them to make a small donation to id-Dar tal-Providenza which provides invaluable help and support to disabled people and their families. We are proud to have had the chance to host an exhibition of religiously themed works and take an active role in the community by helping a great cause.”
Fr Martin Micallef thanked the TAP-K members for their donation. He said that id-Dar tal-Providenza provides an essential service in the community and such a donation is important so that id-Dar tal-Providenza would continue to provide services which respect the dignity of the residents. He said that these donations are crucial so that the residence can improve the level of services it offers through specific projects, like the recently inaugurated Multi-Sensory room.
Artist Hubert J. Flörl has lived and worked in Tirol and Vienna as a freelance artist since 1987. Following the exhibition Mr Flörl donated one of his art works, “Holy Trinity Cross” to the National Museum of Fine Arts collection.
