#2 - Hospice Malta 🤝
The best charities tend to be those that offer their services free of charge, in a completely genuine and voluntary way. Hospice Malta are one of these charities, and they specialise in offering palliative care throughout Malta & Gozo.
If you weren't aware, palliative care refers to the specialized medical care that's needed when patients are going through serious illnesses. This kind of care aims to reduce the pain and frustration a patient might be going through, which serves to improve their quality of life while simultaneously alleviating stress and fear from friends and family members.
Since they're a voluntary organisation, Hospice Malta are always looking for support to keep them afloat, so that they can keep on helping our communities!
