About 90 patients per month leave Malta to go to the U.K for treatment and the need to build more apartments is sorely felt. The patients’ ages range from a mere four days old to elderly people of 89. Individuals of any age might be in need of these apartments at any one time. At the moment we are collecting for a plot of land close to the center of London. This is a once in a lifetime project which will have long term benefits. Our aim is therefore to use donations from Maltese and Gozitan benefactors as wisely and as carefully as possible.
