Karl Vella Foundation
Provides educational and psychological support to children disrupted by the loss or illness of a family member
Karl Vella Foundation mainly provides free educational and psychological support to children, 5 and 17 years, disrupted by the loss or illness of a family member.
‘The Wellness Pod’ consists of a diverse range of psycho-educational programmes facilitated by mental health professionals. The sessions provide children going through similar experiences with a safe space to express and process their feelings and emotions in a group setting as well as one-to-one therapy.
Through ‘Because You Matter, Because We Care’ service, KVF offers emotional and psychological support, as well as crisis intervention, to Maltese patients, and their carers, receiving treatment abroad.
The Foundation's services are unique, therefore both 'The Wellness Pod' and 'Because You Matter, Because We Care' services are very much needed. KVF is currently supporting over 80 children through 'The Wellness Pod' and over 95 patients/carers/donors who are abroad for treatment through 'Because You Matter, Because We Care'.
