Following the launch of the ‘New Hope’ scheme which seeks to help survivors of cancer and other terminal illnesses get bank loans for their future homes, Xarabank host Peppi Azzopardi issued a statement praising the wonderful initiative. The scheme, captained by the Minister for Social Housing Roderick Galdes, lets the government come in and help people who have survived illnesses like cancer when banks cannot issue insurances for them to purchase future homes.
Azzopardi reveals he was speaking to a cancer survivor named Martina who could not get a loan due to having been sick in the past. The Xarabank host praises the latest governmental initiative, saying; ‘Well done because, despite the number of such individuals suffering from this problem being small, the government took initiative. The government made a clear statement – just because it’s a small group of people doesn’t mean that we don’t notice them.’ He said that this removes the discrimination against those seriously ill.
