Reports are reaching id-Dar tal-Providenza that a well-dressed gentleman is knocking on doors informing residents that they won €2,000 through a lottery organized by the Siġġiewi home for its benefactors and that he can arrange for their getting the money by giving him €200, their name and their identity card number.
The Administration of Id-Dar tal-Providenza wishes to make it abundantly clear that there is no such lottery for its benefactors and reiterates that it never gives any permission for collection of donations from households.
In the past there were persons that were prosecuted by the police and found guilty by the Courts. Id-Dar tal-Providenza also appeals to the general public to pass on this type of abuse either directly to the Police or by contacting the Home on 21464951 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>
Whilst thanking the Maltese and Gozitan public for its continued support, Id-Dar tal-Providenza appeals to those wishing to make a donation to do so either by visiting the Home in Siġġiewi, dropping by at the office that the Home now has in St Paul’s Street, Valletta just behind the old market, mailing a cheque, donating through internet banking or the Home’s accounts with the main Banks or on line through its website: www.dartalprovidenza.org<https://www.dartalprovidenza.org>
