Swim for charity raises over €35,000 for families in need

Rafel Sammut, founder of Victory Kitchen, organised a swim to raise funds that will enable the organisation to keep supporting the many Maltese individuals and families that are in need.

The first ever event in aid of Victory Kitchen successfully raised over €35,000.

The event was held on Thursday 10th of September 2020 (it was postponed from Monday 7th September due to unfavourable weather conditions).

Sammut, together with Clyde Bonello, swam a total distance of 15km; leaving from Ċirkewwa at 6.00 am and swimming all the way to Dingli Cliffs.

Victory Kitchen hopes that this event helps raise awareness about their mission, encouraging the public to assist them to continue feeding more people in need.

Sammut said: “I would like to thank everyone who supported us to date. Since March 2020 we have helped feed 19,757 people and 6,952 families. But there is much more to be done. Thanks to our supporters and the public, we can now continue doing this work.”

The public can help Victory Kitchen support more families by sending donations via Revolut on 99441950 or 79796171. Alternatively, donations can be sent through BOV mobile on 99906056. One must include the tag ‘Support Victory Kitchen’ when making the donation.
