EASTER OF HOPE AND SOLIDARITY: MOAS DONATES TRADITIONAL CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS TO MIGRANTS IN MALTA

EASTER OF HOPE AND SOLIDARITY

MOAS DONATES TRADITIONAL CHOCOLATE EASTER EGGS TO MIGRANTS IN MALTA

 

Two years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is celebrating, once again, an Easter different from the others, saddened by the shade of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and still impacted by Covid-19, although mitigated. While MOAS is present in Ukraine, with #MOASMissionUkraine, bringing emergency medical aid to people impacted by the violence, it also continues its activities in Malta to assist vulnerable communities in need.

This year, the complex international situation is making life even more challenging for the people living in the migrant centres, who are already experiencing isolation and a sense of uncertainty.

To celebrate Easter, MOAS donated traditional Easter eggs to families, unaccompanied minors and people residing in the reception centres, as a moment of shared joy. These children, women, and men need to know that they are cared for and supported.

We all know that showing support and a gesture of kindness in challenging moments, means a lot.

The migrant families, unaccompanied minors and adults, hosted in Maltese reception centres, represent one of the groups that MOAS aims to bring comfort, hope and a smile to.

In coordination with AWAS (the Agency for the Welfare of the Asylum Seekers) and other hosting centres, MOAS donated 250 Easter eggs, cereals bars, and cereal boxes – hoping that they would bring a smile and a moment of joy. Each box comes with a creamy milk chocolate egg and 2 milk chocolate bars, or milk chocolate cubes encasing a soft caramel and crunchy biscuit centre. An ideal gift for sharing and enjoying with friends and family.

The donation has been made possible thanks to donors’ invaluable support, who continue to show their appreciation for MOAS initiatives.

MOAS is committed to doing whatever possible to bring comfort and joy in these difficult and uncertain times. We must stay positive and remember that every time we overcome a storm, no matter how difficult it may be, we come out enriched, often wiser and taking the lessons we have learned from the experience.

Together, let’s keep hope alive.
