Apr 16 2022 Share

Yesterday’s record-breaking sum of €3,133,430 would not have been possible without the contribution of various local entities, businesses and individuals, and Malta’s Social Causes Fund was one of the considerable contributors.

In a Facebook post published by Prime Minister Robert Abela, the Prime Minister stated that Puttinu Cares lives the experience with families and children and offers light in moments of darkness and courage in moments of resignation.

Abela highlighted that that is the reason why, during such a significant day, €50,000 from the Office of the Prime Minister’s Social Causes Fund were donated, with the aim of helping Puttinu continue to offer support to struggling families in their time of need.

As stated on the Office of the Prime Minister’s website, the Social Causes Fund generates its income through a percentage contributed from the amount of tax payable from gaming activity and unclaimed prizes. One can apply for funds after having consulted the guidelines and submitting the relevant application form.

Amid a global economic crisis as a result of increased shipping prices and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, prices are expected to continue increasing as inflation persists.

This was discussed by Finance Minister Clyde Caruana in a comment to Times of Malta, where he stated that it is too early to predict how much prices will increase and whether or not the government will affect any stabilising mechanisms.

Malta Employers’ Association director-general Joe Farrugia highlighted that prices will continue to soar as consumers face the increase in raw materials. Farrugia went on to stated that such economic pressure may continue and even deteriorate in the coming months or years due to the Russia-Ukraine crises.

This comes amid national and global concerns from employers about how much further they can absorb costs before passing them on to consumers, resulting in higher costs.

What do you make of this?
