The Prime Minister's wife has launched the fourth edition of the campaign Rigal Bi Mħabba, which encourages people to donate gifts for vulnerable children.

Launching the evening, Lydia Abela said presents can be placed beneath a large Christmas tree in Castille Square, Valletta, from 12 December.

Abela, who started the initiative in 2020, said she was looking forward to see people and companies participate in full force as they did in previous years.


“An initiative like this makes me realise how much the Maltese and Gozitans cherish social values and ensure that even the most vulnerable will have a chance to be happy with a Christmas gift,” she said.

The campaign ends on 21 December with a Christmas village at Castille Square where people are invited for a day of activities.

As in previous years, members of the disciplined forces will be distributing the presents left by the public underneath the tree to children in need.
