Even animals deserve Christmas presents! Stray cats & dogs receive €1,400 worth of food

 - Local - Dec 16 2021 SHARE ON:

It seems like every December, the amount of charity work in Malta increases tenfold, with residents of the little rock coming together to help those in need all across the island. While heart-warming in every scenario, when such charity work extends to animals, you can’t help but respect the selflessness.

This December, the Association for Abandoned Animals (AAA) in Birzebbugia and the Tomasina Cat Sanctuary in Qormi both received a pleasant surprise from Pet Nutrition after the company donated a whopping amount of food to the sanctuaries, both of which need all of the help they can get right now.

The company donated 30 large bags (450kg) of Cat Dry Food to the Tomasina Sanctuary worth €550 as well as 20 large bags (400kg) of Dry Food to the Association for Abandoned Animals worth €350 along with with 850 meals worth €500. Both sanctuaries are non-governmental organisations who host hundreds of stray or abandoned animals and operate thanks to the contribution of animal-loving volunteers and organisations like Pet Nutrition.

Pet Nutrition House Ltd. Head of Marketing Communications Andrew Cassar told Malta Daily that every little helps in such situations and that they encourage other companies to contribute to the cause and donate whenever they can. During 2021, Pet Nutrition donated a total of 1750kg of Dry Foods and 2500 wet food meals to 10+ sanctuaries in Malta and Gozo.

International news portals shed spotlight on Malta over cannabis law

 - International - Dec 16 2021 SHARE ON:

Malta hasn’t been short of international news attention in the past few years, but the recent legalisation of cannabis has catapulted the attention sky-high. 

Acclaimed portals such as Politico, BBC, Reuters, The Guardian and Euronews all shared the story with the headlines stating how Malta has become the first EU country to legalise cannabis for personal use. 

Most portals cited Reforms Minister Owen Bonnici, with the portals even getting comments from him expressing how the prior laws were too hard on cannabis users and that this will move away from the hard-fisted approach.

Reuters claimed how Malta is seeking to ‘position itself as a European leader in the production of medical cannabis having approved legalisation in 2018 to permit the production of such cannabis for medicinal and research purposes.’

Many portals also highlighted the Opposition Party’s stance when it came to the reform, who said that it will normalise and potentially even increase drug use in the country. 

Other countries are being touted as moving towards legalising the drug themselves, with the most associated with cannabis tolerance being the Netherlands and being one such country.

COVID-19 wage supplement extended until January

Prime Minister Robert Abela has confirmed that the wage supplement intended to help businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19 has been extended until January. 

The PM said that ‘on an international level there is uncertainty when it comes to travelling, and we also saw that companies are facing a logistics headache when importing goods.’ 

He pointed out how he and the government want to sustain the progress achieved over the last few months and not lose at such a crucial time.

Determined to support people during uncertain times, he said, ‘we don’t want people to lost their jobs.’ The extension to the wage supplement was also called on by Opposition leader Bernard Grech earlier this month.
