Young People

Malta Independent Saturday, 17 December 2005, 00:00 Last update: about 12 years ago

Young people today are often viewed, judged and discussed in a negative way, criticised for their self-indulgent and pleasure-seeking lifestyles.

Unfortunately, not enough is heard of the thousands of selfless youths who give of themselves and their time to help others in need.

Maria Giuliana Fenech is such a youth: a Caritas volunteer who has recently won the “The Youth of the Year Award 2005” – an initiative organised by Fondazzjoni OASI, that recognises the important relationship between young people and volunteering.

On behalf of all at Caritas, I congratulate Maria Giuliana on winning this prestigious award, and thank her and all the volunteers for their amazing work with us.

I would like to take the opportunity to appeal to any young people who wish to be involved in volunteer work with Caritas to contact us on 2590 6600 for any further information.
