The Malta Community Chest Fund is a charitable institution chaired by The President of Malta to help philanthropic institutions and more importantly individuals with different needs. Throughout the year, various activities such as balls, concerts, exhibitions, fun runs and the television fund raising programme l-Istrina are organised by the Fund to raise much needed funds.
