On November 17th, the World Day of the Poor was celebrated, an occasion that Pope Francis founded at the conclusion of the Jubilee of Mercy. Malteser Albania, as an order of the Catholic Church and part of the Sovereign Order of Malta joined this international initiative by organizing several activities to help people in need.
In the frame of the awareness activities on disability, Dr. Anita Zacharias, pediatrician and Dr. Monika Aly, therapist, from Germany, were invited by the “Malteser Consultation and Service Center” to refer in the training “Autism, a story to share”, which is organized by the Albanian Organization of the Order of Malta.
The International Malta camp (IMS) is something unique: young volunteers spend a week of holidays with physically and mentally impaired friends from around 20 countries in the world. The volunteers support, help and care for the young handicapped.
