As Covid-19 measures are being lifted, Beyond the Moon is pleased to announce that it has earnestly resumed its project 'Offer a Vacation' to families with a seriously ill child.

After two passive corona years, Beyond the Moon's administration team is hard at work making arrangements for the many Maltese families who, due to the pandemic, had their cost-free dream holiday put on hold since March 2020. 

Contact is now being made with the families to establish their availability and update their requirements based on the child's health and needs.  This will enable the Association to retouch base with the child's medical professionals and determine the most ideal holiday resort between Disneyland Paris, Center Parcs, Landal GreenParks and Park Molenheide.

"Resuming our mission feels like a rebirth of our association and reminds us of the very first family we made happy in 2005," says Pascale Somers, Manager & Co-Founder of Beyond the Moon.

These vacations would not have been possible without the support of a number of local sponsor partners including corporate companies such as Corinthia Hotels International, De La Rue Malta and Crane Currency Malta Ltd, who continued with their support even during the pandemic, as well as various fundraising initiatives organised in the past 16 years by Marisa Xuereb, Sponsor Ambassador for Beyond the Moon in Malta.

Over the last two years, since public activities and events were prohibited, Ms Xuereb launched The Perfect Gift, an online market to raise funds for the cause and at the same time promote small business establishments and artisans to shoppers in a COVID-free environment.  As the name implies, the website, www.theperfectgiftfair.com, continues to offer buyers the opportunity to buy the perfect gift for any occasion be it a birthday, Father's Day, or a Thank You memento for that special teacher. 

"Now more than ever, families with a sick child need the opportunity to relax and spend some quality family time together far away from hospitals.  It is really heart-warming to know that we can finally once again make this happen for them" says Ms Xuereb.

Artisans or small establishments may promote their products on the www.theperfectgiftfair.com and social media platforms against a small donation and may contact the organiser by email on [email protected] or by filling in the form available on the website.
