A generous sum of €5,000 has been raised in aid of Dar tal-Providenza during a fundraising night in Australia.
The Friends of Providence House of New South Wales, in conjunction with the Ħamrun Club at Marsden Park of Sydney, raised a total of 7,000AUD on the 18th February.
Those who attended warmly applauded a message read by Secretary FOPH Ms Marisa Previtera from the Home’s Director, Fr Martin Micallef. He said that it is indeed heartwarming to know that thousands of miles away, there are Maltese and Gozitans that have never let go of their roots, and financially continue to support organisations back home like Dar tal-Providenza.
He thanked members and supporters of the Ħamrun Club who chose to be present at the fundraising night and be part of the generous donation made to the Siġġiewi Home.
The Friends of Providence House of New South Wales is led by its Founder and Coordinator, Jim Borg.
