€1,600,723 raised for new Dar Bjorn

Embarking on a 12 hour live telethon, Bjorn Formosa and his team managed to raise €1,600,723 on Sunday 26th of September 2021 for the new Dar Bjorn. It has been 6 years since Bjorn started ALS Malta, working tirelessly to help patients like himself live a better life. The first Dar Bjorn was inaugurated in 2017 in Qormi, but proved too small to cater for all neurological patients in Malta. 

Thus, in 2018, Bjorn initiated his quest to open the second neurological home to cater for more patients. Newer and bigger, the home will be a state of the art medical facility plotted on 7 floors. With each floor totalling over 650sqm of living space, the new facility will feature over 30 beds, indoor pool, gymnasium, chapel, shop, cafeteria, clinics, an art gallery and a fully fledged terrace. 

A €5 million project, €4 million were already collected over three years, leaving around €926K were left to open the home. The live telethon was a massive success as €1,600,723 were raised during 9/26 To Finish, with donations from multiple individuals and groups all around the island.
