Dar tal-Providenza will keep its annual calendar event on the 1st January by organizing the 23rd edition of the generosity feast.
The Home’s director, Fr Martin Micallef, said that the four aims of the feast are that members of the public may meet with residents; watch projects and initiatives being undertaken; the funds raising campaign in aid of the services that Dar tal-Providenza provides; and delivering a message that society should always respect persons with disability, treat them with dignity and offers them choices and opportunities which everyone has a right to enjoy.
Addressing journalists, Fr Martin stated that the generosity feast starts at 9am with a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna at the Home’s chapel, while a spectacle of variety and interviews with personalities will be held during the day till midnight.
