One of Malta’s most popular bands, The Travellers, has teamed up with The Inspire Foundation to promote a message of compassion and empathy through their popular song Sempliċita’.
The Gozitan band members who got together in 2013, said that they are ‘thankful to Inspire for the experience that they were given. The band together with Inspire, created a unique music video for the song Semplicita’ with the intention to promote compassion and empathy in the name of human decency.’
The music video is entirely shot at Inspire’s premises in Marsascala (previously known as Razzett tal-Ħbiberija), and band members are seen walking through the building meeting and interacting with Inspire’s clients as they make use of the many therapeutic and leisure services offered by the foundation.
“Poverty and social immobility is a reality we should not have to come to terms with, and whilst the people at Inspire are doing all they can to change that, they cannot do it without our support,” explained The Travellers.
“The lyrics of the song Sempliċita’ fit Inspire’s ethos perfectly. This is why we chose this song to send out our message” explained Inspire’s CEO Mr. Antonello Gauci. “It is a great honour for us to collaborate with local talent such as The Travellers, who went out of their way to make this campaign a success.”
“Inspire’s resources are limited,” explained the band’s vocalist Chris, “so, we would like to encourage everyone to donate to this cause. Charity is part and parcel of our heritage and, although it won’t magically make things perfect, your small donation might help a struggling family give their child a proper and just education.”
“Working with Inspire has touched us on an intimate level,” added the other band members. “It has also reassured us that, when we work together, we can make the world a better place.”
Inspire believes that everyone has a right to equality and inclusion. Its mission is to try to help everyone with a disability achieve this. This is done by providing individuals and their families with educational, therapeutic and leisure services.
Today, Inspire helps over 1000 individuals with various disabilities ranging from Down Syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and others.
On the 30th October Inspire will be hosting a 12-hour fundraising marathon on all TV stations. Donations can be made by sending an sms on 506 18 926 to donate €6.99.
