Three Local Entities Join Forces In A Touching Act of Solidarity To Help Jake Vella


We have all grown to love the courageous Jake Vella, Malta’s most inspiring athlete. Jake Vella suffers from ROHHAD NET – Rapid-onset Obesity with Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation, and Autonomic Dysregulation. His incredible battle with the disease have captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world.

One of the things which would definitely help Jake achieve more independence, and which would help him in living a normal life, enjoying the outdoors, is a stairlift.

“This family has taught me a lot – the true meaning of the word love, and the fact that any problem which we face in life is fought with positivity,” Minister Farrugia Portelli said.
