Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Minister for Education and Employment Owen Bonnici visited the factory where lunches are being prepared to be distributed later in the day to students under Scheme 9. He thanked the workers who are going out of their way to perform the distribution, which in itself is an expression of solidarity.

In a statement, the Ministry for Education explained that before the closure of schools, around 500 students under Scheme 9 were being given their lunch for free by their respective schools.

After closing the schools, the Government and the Ministry made the necessary arrangments so that the lunches remain delivered on a daily basis to the children that need them. Arrangements have been made to also cater to the children in need who attend Church schools.
