Posted Date: 21/03/2011

The Malta Independent - 21 March 2011

Two SOS Malta volunteers – nurse David Grech and Dr Jeffrey Bonnici – have left for Tunisia this afternoon to assist in the growing aid effort in the camps at the Libya/Tunisia border.

SOS Malta will provide first aid and assist in emergency hygiene and sanitation to prevent the spread of disease.

A needs assessment will be carried out in collaboration with Dr Nejib Karoui, who runs the local organisation, Association de l’entraide et de la Solidarite Sociale.

As people flee their country, the humanitarian needs increase. SOS Malta called on the Maltese to help keep families safe and healthy.

A €20 donation would buy a hygiene kit, including sanitary supplies, towel, comb, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and underwear.

Donations will also help restore hope and provide critical aid to families.

Donations can be made at the following accounts: APS – 20000245111; HSBC – 006070932050; BOV – 40013974950. They can also be made online at or sent to SOS Malta, 10, Triq il-Ward, Sta Venera SVR1640.
