The Maltese Government’s COVID vouchers scheme has been hailed by many as a great idea to help in the island’s economic recovery, but one local has decided to use the vouchers to do some good.
“Whilst I, like many others, do need a nice dinner or a new outfit following these horrible COVID months, I think some others may need it more,” local woman Rebekah Cilia wrote in a post to social media yesterday.
Pledging to donate her vouchers to a women’s shelter to give the women there an opportunity to practice some self-care, Rebekah goes on to urge others to do the same, offering to help co-ordinate the donation. “I am in discussions with the shelters as to how anyone willing to donate can ensure the vouchers have reached the shelter,” she writes.
“We have all been through hardships and need a little pick-me-up sometimes, and this ‘extra’ money could perhaps put a much-needed smile on these women’s faces.”
Well done for the selfless initiative, Rebekah!
