Minister for Social and Affordable Housing Roderick Galdes revealed that another €200,000 will be added to a previously pledged €280,000 for Caritas to help recovering addicts and prisoners reintegrate back into society.
The entire amount pledged by the government now totals €480,000, with the Minister saying that Caritas offers those who fell through the cracks of society the professional access to return to it.

This comes after the announcement of the ‘Mid-Dlam Għad-Dawl’ project in Birgu, which would see a home as well as therapeutic services for local prisoners and their families to help in this reintegration process.
Galdes commended Caritas for its professionalism in helping those trying to remake their lives after serious ordeals with drugs and providing a safety net so that they do not fall back into their previous addictions.
