As a Resource Centre (Dun Manwel Attard, YAERC) we always strive hard to participate in such campaigns as to show and feel our empathy with the sterling work that various institutions and NGOs are doing; such as the Dr Klown Organization, which seeks to make its utmost to help children who are undergoing difficult moments health wise. In participating in the Red Nose Campaign, was of great satisfaction to all staff members as with a little donation we felt that we could be of help and descend joy to these little angels.
