MALTA TRUST FOUNDATION
FEEDING THOSE IN NEED
After receiving an overwhelming number of requests from disadvantaged families who are among the worst hit by the Coronavirus economic crisis, Malta Trust Fund set up a Food Aid Project. They have already received 3,000 requests for help as the economic crisis further destabilises the vulnerable and poor in society. The Malta Trust Foundation is also collaborating with NGOs to provide food supplies as their resources are overstretched and they are struggling to help the increasing number of people coming forward.
GIVING THE GIFT OF THERAPY
Richmond Foundation endeavours to provide optimal community mental health services and as a response to COVID-19, they have established a mental health helpline, 1770, and the GIFT of THERAPY initiative. They are offering online therapy by fully qualified psychologists and psychotherapists, for those individuals who were already experiencing a mental health problem, or for those who have seen a decrease in their mental wellbeing due to the current circumstances. They believe that everyone should be entitled to the right support, and they hope that through this initiative, people can help them reach all those who need help.
