Friends of Providence House NSW (FOPH) donated $9,000AUD to Id-Dar tal- Providenza. The cheque was presented during last Sunday’s fund-raising Marathon. The sum was raised by FOPH throughout 2020/2021 and is normally presented in person to Fr Martin Micallef, Director of the Home, at the ‘Annual Volleyball Marathon’. The fund-raiser is held in the first weekend of July on the grounds of the Siggiewi Home but had to be cancelled for the second year in a row due the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
The Group wishes to thank the Maltese Community in Australia who has once again shown its solidarity together with a very generous benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous. The Group wishes to acknowledge its major Sponsor, George Vella of Breakaway Travel of Blacktown, as well as the support of the Maltese Media in Australia, ‘The Voice of the Maltese’ and the ‘The Maltese E-Newsletter for their ongoing support.
Jim Borg, the Coordinator of Friends of Providence House NSW, together with his team, Marisa Previtera (Secretary) and Miriam Friggieri (Treasurer) stay in regular contact with Fr Martin and continue with their fundraising initiatives for Dar tal-Providenza.
