The two Maltese Rotary Clubs join up to assist St Michael Hospice Project
The two Maltese Rotary Clubs, Rotary Club Malta and Rotary Club La Valette have joined forces to support Hospice Malta. Their donation will be put towards the establishment of St Michael Hospice, the first state-of-the-art complex in Malta dedicated entirely to providing comprehensive palliative care.
“We Rotarians have agreed to provide the furnishings of the sixteen bedrooms at the new St Michael Hospice in St Venera. Our motto is to help people who are less fortunate than us and we wish to be of service to Hospice Malta. Many of us, our relatives and friends have received the caring and valuable service offered by Hospice Malta and we wanted to give back something to Hospice Malta, enabling them to continue with their priceless service and care,” said a representative from the Rotary Clubs.
Hospice Malta’s primary role is to provide and promote palliative care services to patients suffering from cancer, motor-neuron disease, and end-of-life cardiac, respiratory, renal and liver disease free of charge. Through St Michael Hospice complex, Hospice Malta will expand its present community services to over 10,000 visits per year to patients and their families.

“We thank Rotary Club Malta and Rotary Club La Valette for their generosity. Their donation will help provide our loved ones with the care that they deserve,” said Maria Gatt, Chairperson at Hospice Malta.
Hospice Malta, a registered NGO with the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations, offers all of its services free of charge to patients in Malta and Gozo. At Rotary, we welcome the support of any company or individual who may wish to donate towards our scheme and can do so by sending an email on [email protected] or [email protected] for further information.
