BOV Staff Joins Olive Picking Event in Support of Caritas


Bank of Valletta (BOV) staff recently joined forces with the charitable organization Caritas for an olive picking event aimed at supporting community welfare. The event, held in a scenic olive grove on the ground of San Blas in Zebbug, served a dual purpose: to assist Caritas in their philanthropic endeavours and to foster a unique engagement between the bank’s employees and individuals undergoing rehabilitation within the drug rehab system.

The olive picking event was a symbol of collective goodwill, where volunteers from both Caritas and BOV came together to harvest olives. The occasion not only contributed to the noble cause of aiding Caritas’s initiatives but also provided a moment for team-building among the participants. What made this event even more special was the interaction between the BOV staff and the inmates participating in Caritas’s rehabilitation program. Amidst the tranquillity of the olive grove, these two groups engaged in discussions, sharing their experiences, perspectives, and insights. The exchange of views allowed for a deeper understanding of each other’s lives and situations, fostering empathy and understanding.

This interaction was a valuable opportunity for both the BOV employees and the inmates. For the bank staff, it offered a chance to gain new perspectives, challenge biases, and participate in a meaningful social cause, promoting a sense of social responsibility. On the other hand, for the inmates, it was an occasion to feel a sense of inclusion, to be seen beyond their past, and to engage positively with members of the community. The event not only highlighted the importance of community involvement and social solidarity but also demonstrated the transformative power of such interactions. It emphasized that meaningful conversations and shared experiences have the potential to break down barriers, promote understanding, and contribute to the rehabilitation and reintegration of individuals into society.

In summary, the olive picking event organized by Caritas, in collaboration with BOV, not only brought people together for a benevolent cause but also exemplified the positive outcomes of social engagement and mutual understanding between individuals from different walks of life. Such initiatives stand as a testament to the potential for change and unity within communities.
