The Malta Trust Foundation

Sunday, 28 May 2023, 06:28 Last update: about 5 months ago

Generosity and altruism are two characteristics common to most Maltese, as evidenced by the many charitable bodies and entities that have sprouted in recent years.

Yet, there is one particular entity that never receives enough recognition or financial support for the gargantuan charitable work it regularly carries out in order to give great hope and relief to young people embarking on their journey through life, as well as communities facing particular challenges and who are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. I am referring to the Malta Trust Foundation. It does this by educating and empowering individuals to reach their full potential, with an emphasis on projects of a psychosocial nature.

The Foundation, with President Emeritus Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca chairing and in the driving seat, is constantly leaving a tangible impact on gaps within existing services. Students, young people, and children with different disabilities are able to surmount what were once insurmountable difficulties thanks to this Foundation.

We are fortunate to have in this Foundation a living example of how love is not patronising and how charity isn't about pity but about love. Those who are giving their all to this Foundation are not making a living by what they get, but by what they give.

The Foundation constantly works in the belief that it has a real opportunity to help advance equity within our communities and to make sure that, no matter where or how a person is born, he or she has the chance to live a healthy, productive life.

May it continue to flourish.
