The Friends of the Sick and the Elderly in Gozo is recognised by The Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations and its Enrolment Number is VO/0066.
The FSEG was a founder member of the The National Federation of NGOs of Malta, The Malta Health Network and The Gozo NGOs Association. It is the Gozo representative on the National Council for the Elderly.
As a voluntary organisation, the FSEG won the "Premju San Lawrenz - 2001". The San Lawrenz Local Council awards this prize every year to the most deserving philanthropic society in the Maltese Islands. This was only the second time in six years that this prize was won by a Gozo-based society.
It may be of interest to record that two members of the FSEG Committee have received national awards during the last few years for their personal qualities and philanthropic activities.
FSEG Committee Member Mr. Chris Galea was selected O.A.S.I. "Zghazugh tas-Sena - 2000" (Youth of the Year).
FSEG Committee Member Mrs. Antoinette Frendo was voted "Anzjana tas-Sena - 1995" (Elderly Person of the Year)
