Class of 1990: A worthy cause in aid of SiGMA Foundation project

The St Aloysius College Class of 1990 recently gathered at Ta Cicivetta farmhouse in Rabat for a heart-warming reunion on November 24, 2023. Karl Mallia and Tony Sammut, both culinary talents from the class, hosted the well-attended event.

What makes this reunion extra special is its philanthropic tradition. Andre Micallef, overseeing donations, orchestrated a remarkable €2500 fundraiser for the SiGMA Foundation. This year, the funds are earmarked for cleft palate operations for Colombian children from financially strained families. Typically performed on infants, these operations, costing around €800 each, are transformative, ensuring these children lead normal lives in appearance, eating, and speech.

A nod to the Class of 1990 for their outstanding efforts! Their collective generosity will cover three life-changing operations in Cartagena.

In the words of the organizers, “both Charlotte and myself love what the SiGMA Foundation is doing with the underprivileged in Ethiopia, The Philippines, and Colombia and wanted to be involved. The funds we raised through this event will serve to finance three cleft palate operations in Cartagena, and that, for us, is precious. We ask everyone out there to come on board, to be contributory. Every €800 operation will be life-changing, so let’s bring meaningfulness to the festive season and give true value to the Christmas spirit.”

This heartening initiative showcases the impact a group of individuals can make when united for a cause. It’s an invitation for others to follow suit, turning gatherings into opportunities for positive change. Bravo, Class of 1990! May your example inspire many to contribute to meaningful causes.
