Pro life group to open 7 new flatlets for mothers and children

Leading pro-life group ‘Life Network Foundation Malta’ announced that Dar Tgħanniqa ta’ Omm will be opening 7 new flatlets for women and children. 

Administrative Officer of Dar Tgħanniqa ta’ Omm Christie Żammit said that these units have been designed to ‘support and empower mothers and their children who have benefited from living at the home with their newborns.’

‘The aim of these flatlets is to support these women as they continue their education or settle into full time employment.’

Mothers living in these units will be able to stay for up to two to three years and can either study or work as they do so. The group aims to make the flatlets available as soon as refurbishment is ready. 

Life Network Foundation has been explicitly opposed to abortion entering Malta and hopes to provide assistance to women whilst opposing the currently proposed bill.
