The fourth edition of the campaign – Nahseb Fik (I am Thinking of You) is well underway. This year there are a record 400 gift requests.
Through this campaign it enables people from certain groups to make their wishes for a Christmas gift and the public is invited to fulfil these wishes.
It is an independent initiative launched by Lina Pecorella in 2014 and operates in cooperation with the Ministry for Gozo. This year’s edition was launched by Gozo Minister, Dr Justyne Caruana last month at the Santa Marta Day Centre
The organisers have said that to date, 60% of the wishes have been granted, with 40% remaining. They thanked everyone that has contributed so far, while also encouraging others to help them fulfil each and every remaining Christmas wish.
Originally this campaign was for the benefit of the elderly, but now gifts are also distributed to persons with special needs and children undergoing treatment or therapy.
Nahseb Fik is helping to to fulfil their wishes, and to see the value of the true meaning of celebrating Christmas.
