As it has become tradition, every year, on the occasion of the Feast of Our Lady of Victories, the Naxxar Community comes together to raise funds in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation. Funds that are then presented to the President of Malta.
Yesterday, for the 26th consecutive year, in a symbolic ceremony, representatives from the NGOs and Clubs based in Naxxar, together with the Local Council and the MPs who hail from Naxxar or who contest the district, welcomed H.E. Dr. George Vella. President of Malta to present the donation.
“This commendable initiative, which began 26 years ago – with the proceeds being donated to the Fund on the Sunday preceding the Feast of Our Lady of Victories – reflects the unity that can exist within a community in spite of divergent opinions, which are a staple of democracy and civilisation. I encourage other localities to follow Naxxar’s lead and unite people around common goals such as this annual fundraising effort,” His Excellency wrote on Facebook.
In the meantime, over at the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation, preparations are in full swing for “Help us Help Others | Ghinuna Nghinukom,” which will be a 12-hour Fundraising Marathon which will be aired on all local TV stations, on the 20th September. Every month, the MCCFF requires some €1 Million to be able to assist all those who seek help. The Pandemic has hit the Foundation hard, especially because the large fundraising events which are usually organised such as Rockestra and the Fun Run cannot be held as per the measures set by the Health Authorities.
So, your phone call, or your SMS on the 20th September will surely go a long way!
