25 Sep CHARITY SWIM IN AID OF VICTORY KITCHEN ON MONDAY
Victory Kitchen together with Happy Initiative is organising its Annual Charity Swim, which will take place on Monday 27th September, weather permitting. Rafel Sammut and Andrew Arrigo, under the guidance of Neil Agius from Wave of Change, shall attempt to swim around Gozo for a continuous, unassisted, non-stop swim covering 37KM in approximately 12 hours.
Victory Kitchen was set up with the sole intention of delivering food to the families that have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, seeking to help as many people as possible during these difficult times by providing free hot meals daily. To date, Victory Kitchen has helped 18,954 families, by donating 96,424 meals.
Victory Kitchen needs constant assistance to continue supporting families in need. This is not possible without the generosity of the public through their donations.
“We strongly believe that no one should go to bed hungry, and we use this as our battle cry for this year’s swim to try and raise enough funds to donate 120,000 meals for the next 12 months, further helping more families as well as other NGOs in providing hot meals for those that are in need,” said Rafel. “This year it is not simply a normal charity swim, as we have taken it up a notch, with our target being to swim around Gozo. We hope that this challenge we are undertaking can help raise more awareness about our cause and the much-needed support to help more families in need. The more donations we collect, the more meals and families we can provide for. Our dream is to reach the 100,000-meal milestone and beyond to keep helping and feeding families in need”.
