    Volunteers Needed

  • All events that the Friends of the Sick and the Elderly in Gozo (FSEG) was planning for this spring, have been cancelled in line with National Authorities' provisions and health advice in view of the current Covid-19 pandemic.

    This means that all our Car Boot Sales, our fund-raising Concert as well as our Annual General Meeting have all been cancelled until further notice.

    It will be our pleasure to announce new dates once these are decided upon, when National Authorities give the go ahead for public events to resume.

    In the meantime we appeal to all, especially to the sick and the elderly and those living in the same household, to take all precautions possible to weather this storm.

    Stay safe!

  • Projects

    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). 

    In 2009 we co-operated in the setting up of Meals-on-Wheels in Gozo and continue to be committed to run the cooking and delivery service for the meals on wheels that is delivered 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.
