In a world where compassion and support are crucial, CareMalta continues to redefine the concept of care.

The company’s expansion into the realm of alternative care marks a significant milestone in its journey, thanks to the vision of CareMalta Director Charlene Vella Vassallo and her commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children.

“I was initially drawn to the organisation through my own personal experience,” Charlene explains. “Despite initially not actively participating in the day-to-day operations of CareMalta, my passion for human rights, particularly those of children, prompted me to pursue specialised studies in this field.”

Charlene’s sister, Natalie, hinted at the opportunity for her to join CareMalta as the Development Director for a new sector within CareMalta Group – Alternative Care. Though initially a daunting prospect, Charlene was inspired by the love of her own five children, and a desire to delve deeper into the circumstances faced by less fortunate children in various situations. She recognised this opportunity as the chance to give something back to society.

With a legacy spanning 30 years of compassionate caregiving, the delicate nature of the Alternative Care sector required the strength and support of CareMalta’s extensive experience. Its heart lies in providing a nurturing home for children and adolescents, fostering an environment that sparks hope and resilience.

By offering a fresh outlook and new opportunities, CareMalta wants to provide a brighter future for those under its care. Through this sector, it aims to change the perspective on life for these young individuals, encouraging them to dream big and overcome their limitations. Charlene believes that even the smallest changes can make a profound difference in the lives of these children.

“CareMalta has continuously evolved, setting itself apart from other organisations, and solidifying its position as a resilient and forward-thinking company,” Charlene states.

“We strive to create an inclusive society that is attuned to the needs of its members. Its responsiveness to societal needs has garnered respect and recognition, establishing CareMalta as a company that remains closely connected to the pulse of the community.”

At the core of CareMalta’s mission lies a deep understanding of the importance of humanity. By extending their dedication to the Alternative Care sector, CareMalta aims to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children, ensuring they receive the care and support they deserve. Charlene says CareMalta’s commitment to comprehensive care is evident through its continuous engagement with families, caregivers, and social workers:

“Children are our future. By fostering open discussions and maintaining constant communication, CareMalta ensures a holistic approach to the well-being of our young residents. Furthermore, regular reassessment of each individual’s situation enables us to adapt and tailor its services accordingly.”
