Oħloq Tbissima marathon kicks off

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The broadcasting marathon Oħloq Tbissima launched today at 5pm for the 18th consecutive year. CPi Media are hosting it at the studios located at at Dar San Gużepp, Santa Venera up till 19th July.

This year’s motto is “Give dignity, feed a family”. The social media hashtag is #ItmaFamilja.

Videos recorded and sent to CPi Media by MSSP missionaries in Peru, Pakistan and the Philippines will be shown during the broadcast. These missionaries will explain how the pandemic hit the locals and how thousands of families lost their jobs and had no money left to buy food – not even for one meal a day.

This year the studio is set up with two large screens. Like last year, one of the screens will be used to visualize a board with symbols where they intersect. Each symbol on the board represents a family in Peru, Pakistan or the Philippines.

Donations will be accepted to feed 450 or more families for 6 months in the mentioned countries. With a pledge of €200, one feeds a person from these families. With a pledge of €500, one will be helping to feed a family for 6 months. However, any other donations still contribute to the feeding of these families.

Those who donate €200 or more will be given a photo of these families to keep as a souvenir, with an inscription that says “I have fed a family”.

  • 51002031 – € 20
