’Dar tal-Prov­i­denza’ pro­vides ser­vice and ded­i­ca­tion to its 100 res­i­dents with spe­cial needs and this is the most im­por­tant aim for this home. Res­i­dents are be­ing of­fered an al­ter­na­tive home due to some fa­mil­iar prob­lems. ’Id-Dar tal-Prov­i­denza’ of­fers also respite ser­vice to all the fam­ily of the res­i­dents, so to reach the goal of com­fort and full sup­port to feel at home as much as pos­si­ble.

Keep­ing in mind that there are a good num­ber of full timers and so many other vol­un­tary per­sons, it is es­ti­mated that the Dar tal-Prov­i­denza re­quires € 13,000 daily to keep run­ning its daily need for th­ese res­i­dents. All this work can be only pos­si­ble through­out our gen­er­ous Mal­tese ci­ti­zens that con­tin­u­ously be­lieve and give a help­ing hand through do­na­tions to keep this home run­ning smoothly and on go­ing with­out any dif­fi­cul­ties as much as pos­si­ble.

On Sun­day 16 Oc­to­ber ev­ery­one is in­vited to par­tic­i­pate and con­trib­ute through this ac­tiv­ity in sol­i­dar­ity with this ded­i­cated home for per­sons with spe­cial needs.
