In the framework of the “OLD IS GOLD” program, young Malteser volunteers play a critical role in supporting the elderly through a number of activities: support in home maintenance and other life skills, taking care of the groceries, paying bills, accompanying the elderly to the hospital, city trips and field visits to museums, monuments and pilgrimages to Christian sites.
The last days of the year in our Malteser kindergarten the atmosphere has been very festive atmosphere for our children. 2020 has been the most challenging year of all and a big applause to our children, teachers and parents who had to cope in 2020 with all those new rules, physical distancing, on-line classes etc.
With the cold winter season approaching, the young volunteers of Malteser Albania were engaged in starting a campaign for the people in need. The initiative was modest, as it first started by informing relatives and classmates of the volunteers.Step by step, the youngsters designed a leaflet that would be handed out, in addition to promoting the campaign on all social media platforms.
Inspired by the principles of the Order of Malta “To Serve the Needy and the Forgotten”, Malteser Albania is engaged in offering a wonderful service called “Sunday Meal”. Since January, every Sunday our team has been preparing and delivering hundreds of portions of food for the elderly and people in need.
