The late Puttinu Cares founder and local paediatric cancer specialist Victor Calvagna would have turned 64-years-old today.
The NGO took to social media to pay tribute to the beloved doctor, saying that on a day such as this, they would be celebrating, eating cake and discussing the upcoming Good Friday marathon.
‘But we can do nothing except for miss your presence’ wrote the NGO. ‘We cannot give you a gift but the best thing we can do is name the London building in your name. Binja Victor Calvagna’.
‘This is for you, who wanted to see this amazing project completed and who had close to his heart all the patients he cared for. Rest in Peace Dr. Calvagna – we will never forget you!’
Victor Calvagna was hit by a car in Qawra on Tuesday December 28th last year, rendering him brain dead for several days. He passed away surrounded by his loved ones one week after the accident.
