“Local Councils too have to give their fair share in order to improve the quality of life of persons with disability living in their localities.” Fr Martin Micallef, Director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza said this when he was invited to address the Annual meeting of the Local Councils Southern Region on the work that is done by the Home.
