Take action on this International Day of Charity

Today is the International Day of Charity. To mark this occasion, we’re highlighting some of the organisations MeDirect, and our employees, have been supporting over the past twelve months.

We also ask you to take some time to think about those in our society who are most vulnerable and contribute whatever you can, either to one of the organisations below, or to any charity or NGO that works in an area that matters most to you.

Thank you!

The Alive Foundation

The Alive Foundation raises funds to support medical research by funding Ph.D scholarships at the University of Malta.

The Foundation has also helped create a children’s recreational area within the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre.

Children’s Dreams

Children’s Dreams is an independent initiative created to give children identified by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services the opportunity to make their Christmas wishes come true. The wishes of children from families facing social and financial difficulty or being raised in Children’s Homes are collected and made public so that other organisations or individuals can step forward to fulfil them.

Foodbank Lifeline Foundation

Foodbank Lifeline provides non-perishable emergency 7-day food packs, including canned food, cereals, pasta, sauces and rice to individuals, couples or families who are struggling to find money for food. The Foundation supports people who are referred by specific agencies such as Appogg, Child Protection, Mental Health and Oncology teams, Caritas, Sedqa and the Jesuit Refugee Service.

Hospice Malta

Hospice Malta provides and promotes palliative care for persons suffering from end-of-life cancer, motor neuron disease, cardiac, respiratory, renal and liver diseases as well as Creutzfeldt Jacob disease and Multiple Sclerosis. Services are offered through a professional multidisciplinary team with the assistance of volunteers.

Inspire Foundation

Inspire believes that everyone has a right to equality and inclusion and aims to help everyone with a disability achieve this. The Foundation provides individuals and their families with educational, therapeutic and leisure services. It also advocates for inclusion, general public education, awareness raising and knowledge acquisition on disability in Malta.

MSPCA

MSPCA promotes kindness to animals and attempts to prevent all forms of cruelty to animals. It works actively to ensure that any legislation that affects, or is likely to affect, the welfare of animals is promoted or opposed accordingly.  MSPCA conducts regular education campaigns and rehomes pets that have been rescued or abandoned.

Nature Trust Malta

Nature Trust (Malta) is one of the oldest and largest environmental NGOs in Malta. Over the years it has worked and to get legal protection for various plants and animals in the Maltese Islands, helping to save them from extinction. Today the Trust is very active in environmental education and carries out many environmental projects in Malta such as afforestation, habitat conservation and the creation of marine protected areas.

Puttinu Cares

Puttinu Cares is a children’s cancer support group dedicated to creating an environment within the hospital’s oncology centre, which is more attractive for children, and therefore more conducive to children’s medical care. The organisation also offers guidance for parents to help them deal with this ordeal. Since it is not possible to treat all children’s cancers in Malta, Puttinu Cares also offers help when families need to go abroad to pursue further treatment in UK, providing free accommodation.

The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation

The aim of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation is to improve the quality of life and care of individuals and society in general, without any form of discrimination based on social class, gender identity, age, ability, health, status or religion. This is done through the effective and transparent disbursement of funds raised through fund-raising activities, donations, contributions, bequests, endowments and legacies.

The Malta Trust Foundation

The Malta Trust Foundation aims to assist and support young persons facing particular situations. This is achieved by taking concrete action through the development of initiatives and programmes that target the empowerment and the psychosocial support of vulnerable groups. This stems from the recognition that there are groups in society that are falling out of existing safety nets.

The Marigold Foundation

The Marigold Foundation aims to support charities and NGOs in raising standards and strengthening their voices. It also aims to support the community by addressing specific issues such as social behaviour, health issues, special needs and education.
