Caritas Malta has launched a new website giving easier access to information about the organisation and the services it provides, and the activities it organises. The website is sponsored by Abakus Solutions, the software company who have supported Caritas Malta with their website since its inception. The site is available at

Making use of latest technology, the site lists Caritas Malta services, which are offered free of charge to persons in need. These include New Hope – the various programmes for rehabilitation from drug abuse, Prevention Education, Counselling and Social Work, Community Outreach, HelpAge, the Foundation for Victims of Usury, and Xefaq – the counselling service for persons at risk from sexually transmitted infections.

The Support Groups page gives information about Gamblers Anonymous , the Rose Group – for widowed and separated persons, the Thursday Club – for mentally challenged persons, Twenty-one Plus – for young persons seeking development of social skills, and sections on Emotions Anonymous – for persons going through emotional difficulties, and Alcoholics Anonymous.

The site also hosts a highly informative micro-site of the Caritas Malta Epilepsy Association.

Anson Aquilina, Director for Abakus Solutions said that "it is not only an honour but also a duty to be of service to the community. We are committed to help Caritas Malta in promoting it's services through the web, using the best tools we have at hand."

Caritas Malta says that the new site should make it easier for people in difficulty to identify the Caritas service most adapted to their situation.
