The Church in Malta is currently carrying out works in Dar Ġesù Nazzarenu in Żejtun in order to welcome victims of domestic violence within six months. The shelter, run by Fondazzjoni Sebħ, is estimated at around €500,000.
The shelter, situated within the nuns’ convent, will welcome 33 persons between mothers and children who experienced domestic violence and took the courageous decision to move on. Besides taking care of children in Church residential homes, Fondazzjoni Sebħ also helps families rebuild their lives and gain their independence.
Currently, the shelter is situated at Dar Qalb ta’ Ġesù in Ħamrun. It will be transferred to the home in Żejtun, since in the coming weeks structural works will commence at the Church property in Ħamrun, which will be transformed into a palliative care complex run by Hospice Malta.
