During a visit the Santa Marta Day Centre, the Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana launched the third edition of the campaign – Nahseb Fik (I am thinking of you).
This campaign is a project through which people from certain groups are able to make their wishes for a Christmas gift and the public is invited to fulfil these wishes.
Previously this Christmas campaign was for the benefit of the elderly, but this year it will be extended to disabled persons and children undergoing treatment or therapy.
The Minister Justyne Caruana explained that, Nahseb Fik started as a pilot project, but because it became so successful this year it has been extended to other groups.
She said that the beauty of this project is that at Christmas time we have people who for one reason or another cannot share the joy associated with these holidays. “Therefore, it is an extremely nice gesture to fulfil their wishes, and see the true meaning of celebrating the value of Christmas.”
The Minister Justyne Caruana appealed to the public to take part and to think of those people who are lonely and going through difficult times..
Dr Caruana thanked Ms Lina Pecorella, who was the brain behind this initiative and all those who over the years have given gifts to the appeal.
“Together, as a community, we can make a difference this Christmas,” said Minister Justyne Caruana.
