Serving the poor

The Hungarian Maltese Charity Service has been launching an annual donation drive of non-perishable food as the birth of our Saviour approaches for the past twenty-five years now. The call to give to those in need reaches hundreds of thousands of people. Let us feed the hungry! Let us give those thirsty a drink! The request is the same today as it was two thousand years ago. A request that addresses all of us. It is a great joy to see the many people who are responding and donating. They are making Christmas brighter for all those for whom this food is a real gift. Thousands of Maltese volunteers are helping with the collection. I join them year after year. I receive, select, and box the donations. Because it is a joy to give – and it is a task for all of us to see the brothers and sisters in others.
