H.G. Archbishop Mgr. Paul Cremona O.P. has entrusted Caritas Malta with the task of exposing the face of poverty in Malta, and said that this would be a difficult mission as poverty was hidden. The Archbishop was addressing a Forum organised by Caritas Malta to launch its programme of activities to mark the year 2010, which has been designated by the European Commission as the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion (EY2010).

Mgr. Cremona said that Caritas Malta was the official voice of the Church on the social reality in Malta. He endorsed the analysis made earlier by Caritas Malta Director Mgr. Victor Grech on the social situation in Malta and his proposals to tackle it.
