Minister for Family and Solidarity Dr Michael Falzon praised the initiative started by Missio and Newsbook.com.mt ‘Adopt a Grandparent’. This initiative seeks to overcome the well of loneliness in which several elderly persons find themselves in when their families fail to visit or keep in contact. Missio and Newsbook.com.mt partnered to try to gather enough persons to pair up persons who have no one to visit them with generous persons who would be willing to give some time to keeping these persons company.

Minister Falzon said that ‘Adopt a Grandparent’ is a shining example of solidarity particularly in this difficult time. He thanked the originators of this initiative which is aimed at putting solidarity in practice in an innovative way.
