“The Malta Community Chest Fund is one of the most loved charitable organisations on our islands and our donation shows the need for continuos support for their exceptional work carried out throughout the year,” Mr Sharma continued.

Meanwhile Ms Abela praised Vodafone for its donations nad held that to value and help people in need is a true value.. “Vodafone’s contribution will help us with our varius projects, providing funds for the relief of poverty, famine, sickness, disability and any other needs to individauls, communities, institutions or organisations alike,” she continued.
