Maltese Paediatric Association supports ’22 children’

The Maltese Paediatric Association issued a statement today that it

deplores the position taken by Identity Malta towards non EU families residing in Malta, whereby enforcement of a policy of minimum income results in the expulsion of these children from our country and the inevitable separation from their parents.

For this reason, the Malta Paediatric Association supports the initiative by His Grace the Archbishop who has appealed to all parishes, religious congregations, Catholic groups and societies to support his initiatives to guarantee the children’s funding if need be.

The Malta Paediatric Association will be organising a fundraiser to support the 22 children with all proceeds being directed to ’22 Children’ at  Caritas.

Further details will be released shortly.
