Our Philosophy

Registered with the Malta Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations as a Voluntary Organisation (VO/0325), our philanthropy is a core value, enhancing our sense of friendship and camaraderie as we support local Maltese charities.  

Each year we raise funds for three to five charities, carefully recommended by our Standing Committee for Philanthropy and accepted by the Executive Board. 

If you would like a charity to be considered, please contact us on philanthropy@aiwmalta.com.


2020 Activities

Sadly, COVID-19 has put a stop to many of our planned fundraising activities this year.  However, we were delighted to meet with Centru Tbexbix on 6 July and donate €1,500 to support their annual Summer Club.

We also ended the year by holding a Charity Drive at the Marsa Sports Club. This was to provide supplies and clothes for babies and young children at Dar Qalb ta’ Ġesu, and St. Teresa orphanage. The Drive was an overwhelming success!   We collected two full carloads of items, and members generously donated €270.   


Charities we support

Our funds are derived from the annual International Christmas Fair, a Spring Fashion Show, Membership Fees, and smaller ad-hoc events throughout the year such as lectures and teas.

Our members also participate in hands-on Charitable Service Projects.  If you know of project that requires volunteer involvement, please contact us.
