VOICES DISTRIBUTES € 190,000 TO CHARITY

The VOICES CELEBRATION concerts, held last October, raised €190,000 which will go towards 26 voluntary organisations to help finance a series of projects aimed at assisting the vulnerable. The VOICES CELEBRATION concerts which marked the finale of VOICES, looked back at its 25 years of existence, revisiting some of the most memorable moments and musical numbers.

On the 3rd of May, the VOICES Foundation distributed the funds raised  to the selected beneficiaries following the recommendations of the VOICES Beneficiary Advisory Board, which analysed all project applications received. The selected projects included Walking the Yellow Brick Road, a project by the Paolo Freire Institute, which works therapeutically with children to support their emotional and relational well-being, The Malta Hospice Movement with a project set to optimise IT to enhance communication and improve services to families and carers, and a project by Centru Tbexbix that focusses on the physical well-being of children attending their summer schools in the cottoned area. In all, 26 projects benefited from the VOICES CELEBRATION funds. Other projects included those managed by the St. Jeanne Antide Foundation, SOS Malta, Zghazagh Azzjoni Kattolika and Sisters of Charity, among other voluntary organisations.

While addressing the guests at the fund-giving ceremony, VOICES Foundation Chairman Antonello Gauci said “The past 25 years of VOICES would have not been possible, if it weren’t for the hard work of hundreds of people who volunteered to this cause, and it is because of these people that we are here today.”

The VOICES Foundation has also just launched a €25,000 Start-up Initiative Fund and is is inviting organisations or individuals to apply for one-time funding of a project that would reflect the Foundation’s aims – that of bringing people together in a positive and creative environment and to be a voice for the underprivileged. The fund will be awarded to that organisation or individual whose project successfully meets the Foundation’s criteria. To download the Fund application form, as well as the Regulations and more information, visit the VOICES website, www.voices.org.mt

The VOICES CELEBRATION concerts were  organised in collaboration with The Vodafone Malta Foundation and supported by Kinnie, APS Bank, Island Caterers Ltd., Martini, ICE Malta, Marks & Spencers, StudioSeven, San Michel, Bathroom Design, MAV, Nexos, The Sound System Co.Ltd. and The Classic Group.
