For Christmas, MOAS Donated 285 Panettones to Families, Children And Residents of Migrant Centres in Malta.

As we approach the festive season, following a year marked by global challenges and conflicts that have displaced countless families, MOAS remains committed to its mission to support the most vulnerable communities worldwide. In the spirit of Christmas and in line with their humanitarian values, MOAS team is pleased to announce that MOAS has donated 285 panettones to families, children, and residents of the migrant centres in Malta.

The impact of armed conflicts in various parts of the world, which have resulted in unprecedented levels of human migration, has created an atmosphere of uncertainty and isolation. Recognising the challenges faced by migrant communities in Malta, especially during the holidays, MOAS aimed to use this opportunity to spread a positive message of peace and solidarity.

For Christmas, MOAS donated 285“panettone” (a traditional seasonal sweet made in Italy) to everyone, includingall families and children residing in the AWAS-run migrant centres, as well as residents of the housing facilities Osanna Pia Home run by the Salesian of Don Bosco, and Peace Lab founded by father Dionysius Mintoff, recently awarded with the Lysistrata Prize for his peace-building initiatives.

Heartfelt thanks go to the MOAS donors and supporters, as well as the partners (Lidl, Fastdrop and Academy member PCutajar Foundation), for their invaluable contributions. With the collaborative effort of a team of volunteers, MOAS successfully distributed these sweet gifts to bring comfort and smiles to those who need it most.

Christopher Catrambone, MOAS Founder, expressed:

"This donation is a gesture of hope and solidarity. In these challenging times,showcasing kindness towards the most vulnerable is crucial. Through this small act, MOAS emphasises the importance of civil society outreach and community support. Every act of generosity, no matter how small, contributes to fostering a better tomorrow”.
