Saint Lazarus Foundation donates Eur 2,500 to the Iklin Parish for the Disabled (April 2015)
The Chairman of the Saint Lazarus Foundation, Dr. Massimo J Ellul, donated the amount of Euros 2,500 to the Reverend Father Michael Bonnici, the Archpriest of the Iklin Parish Church, for the latter's first of a kind audio visual catechism centre for disabled children and youths of the Parish. The Foundation in Malta has to date donated more than Euros 200,000 for worthy, similar causes.
This donation further solidifies the commitment of the Order in the Maltese jurisdiction as one of the main NGOs operating for the empowerment of the disabled in the country in question. The audio visual catechism centre, being the first of its kind on the island, is another medium which can now be used by the disabled in order to ensure for the latter full religious and spiritual integration regardless of the disability which might impair a holistic approach to the betterment of one's mind, body and soul.
