The World Day of the Poor is celebrated for the first time this year on November 19, and H.E Pope Francis invites us to realize social assistance for poor. For Malteser Albania staff and volunteers all the days are the same: all our projects and activities are to help the poor and disadvantaged communities’ throughout of Albania.
On Mental Health Awareness Day, the volunteers of the Albanian Organization of the Order of Malta have organized several activities with the children living in the Missionary Center of Mother Teresa.
