About the event

A night of full local and foreign music arts with dancers n bands to help raise funds for Shawn.

Shawn Mifsud is a 37 year old army soldier, married and has 2 young daughters.  He was diagnosed with a virus which turned into severe sepsis.  His condition rapidly deteriorated within hours and had to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit on August 21st, 2023. Thankfully, a miraculous event occurred, leaving him alive, but unfortunately, his life drastically changed from that moment on.

On 7th September 2023, both of his hands were amputated below the elbow due to the lack of blood circulation caused by the damage inflicted by the septic shock. Subsequently, on 11th September 2023, both of his legs were amputated above the knee. Additionally, this illness impacted his kidneys, leading to kidney failure, requiring dialysis three times a week until a suitable kidney donor is found for a transplant. Furthermore, due to medication side effects, he is experiencing hearing impairment.

Shawn is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Karen Grech Hospital, working towards obtaining prosthetics. He requires bionic hands and legs, an electric wheelchair, hearing aids, and modifications to his home for increased independence.  These will considerably improve his quality of life however, the financial burden for Shawn and his family is substantial.

The estimated cost for the prosthetic bionic arms is approximately €200,000. Any contributions made will directly support Shawn through donations to his account at BOV
