Over many years, the funds we collected have been used to donate much needed items of equipment to the various departments in the Gozo General Hospital, including Rezidenza Sant'Anna, the Male Elderly Residence, and the Psychiatric Wards for the benefit of patients and staff. (See Donations and Loans section).
We co-operated in the setting up of Meals-on-Wheels in Gozo in 2000 and are committed to run the delivery service every day in a vehicle we donated for the purpose.
We help also the homes for the elderly run charitably by the Dominican and Carmelite nuns in Victoria.
Since 2009, the FSEG ongoing project has been to cater for the needs of the sick and the elderly in their own homes by providing pressure-relieving mattresses, electrically-controlled patient lifters and variable-position beds.
This service encourages and assists family members to care for bedridden patients at home and helps relieve pressure on beds for the elderly in hospital and nursing homes. In addition we continue to supply wheelchairs, walking aids, commodes, etc., which the hospital seems to have been unable to loan out for years. This project is now well established and expanding.
On 5th December 2010, with the help of Rotary Club Gozo, we opened a Storage and Distribution Centre at the M.A.S. Residential Complex in Ghajnsielem for our equipment loan sevice.
