Ħamrun Ħanin coordinates Food Relief to newly-opened YMCA Drop-In Centre

Spartans duo Prsa and Nenov participated in event

In a remarkable display of community solidarity, Ħamrun Ħanin has partnered with Alberta Group and Ħamrun Spartans FC Daikin School of Excellence to make a substantial donation of food products, clothes and other essential products to the newly-opened YMCA Drop-in Centre in Ħamrun.

This food collection drive was organised on the occasion of the upcoming International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, which is remembered globally on October 17.

Amidst the growing challenges faced by many vulnerable members of our community, the different partners united their efforts to address the urgent issue of food insecurity.

Between 600 to 800 people each month are knocking on the door of the new Drop-In Centre seeking some kind of support.

The community-wide food drive brought together individuals of all ages and backgrounds to contribute to this important cause.  This donation will enable YMCA to continue its vital mission of providing shelter, food, and support to individuals facing adversity within our community.

Ħamrun Spartans FC stars Roko Prsa and Yuliyan Nenov were present to support the delivery of the rather impressive food delivery while showing the club’s commitment to those in need.

While Ħamrun Ħanin coordinated the collection drive, which attracted the participation of many food outlets around the island as well as individual donations, Alberta Group carried out an internal food collection drive among its staff. On the other hand, the Ħamrun Spartans FC Daikin School of Excellence called on its young footballers, who enthusiastically joined the initiative, bringing their own contributions to support their peers in need.

Anthony Camilleri, YMCA CEO said: “This community centre is serving as a bridge towards a more dignified life, as an example of inclusive communities and a motivation for further collaboration and corporate social responsibility. With the support of the general public, the community of Hamrun and the stakeholders that invested in supporting our service users in providing them with dignity, we are putting a smile on the faces of those who suffer in silence.”

Members of the Ħamrun Ħanin voluntary organisation assisted in the delivery of the food stuff to the Drop-In centre and expressed hope that more companies, sports clubs and individuals follow suit in the coming weeks to truly contribute to the fight against poverty in our country.
