What we stand for


We are firm believers in the power of a community working together to give a helping hand to those in need.


Along with building awareness, we help raise funds to give a helping hand to those who need medical or other care.


As a community, we stand shoulder to shoulder in solidarity and together help find solutions and build resources for those in need.

Joining Forces

In unity, we can merge our strengths and experiences to accomplish great things for those in need.

Q. Why are we doing this?

A. is one of a number of initiatives taken to compensate for the shortfall in donations to the MCCFF due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the restrictions introduced to curb the spread of the virus, annual events which used to help fill up the national charity fund's coffers had to be cancelled, thus depriving the Foundation of valuable funds to support those in need. Besides, some entrepreneurs who would have been at the forefront with their generous donations, are going through a tough time themselves and can only afford smaller contributions, if any. In this light, through this project we are raising small amounts of money from a large number of people. Every drop counts!

Q. Who will benefit?

A.Adults and children who turn to The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation for support in the funding of oncology treatment, parental stays of children receiving treatment abroad, provision of food vouchers, and other services vital to dignified living, and to alleviate material and psychological suffering.
