Is-Sinjura Miriam Vella ħadet ħafna gost tiltaqa’ mal-istudenti mill-iskejjel ta’ Ħad-Dingli, l-Imġarr u l-Imtarfa li bi kburija kbira bdew jirrakkuntawlha kif qed iwarrbu xi ħaġa fil-ġimgħa biex jitfgħuha fil-karus tal-Istrina #BOV Piggy Bank Campaign. Hija ħeġġet lit-tfal kollha biex huma wkoll jaħsbu fi tfal u familji oħrajn li tant għandhom bżonn l-għajnuna ta’ The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation. Ritratti ta’ tufigno.com.
Mrs Miriam Vella thoroughly enjoyed meeting students from the schools of Dingli, Mġarr and Mtarfa who with great pride told her that they are saving a little money every week to put in the piggy bank of the l-Istrina #BOV Piggy Bank Campaign. She encouraged all children to also think of other children and families who really need the help of The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation. Photos by tufigno.com.
As in previous years, the L-Istrina BOV Piggy Bank Campaign will once again be taking place in all schools of Malta and Gozo. Due to the new circumstances Mrs Miriam Vella, First Lady of Malta, will not be visiting the schools in person but will convey her message virtually. The purpose of this Campaign is to make students aware and also to instill in them the importance of helping others.
This year’s edition will see the traditional plastic piggy bank replaced by a cardboard piggy bank that is easily recycled, and will reduce the negative impact on the environment. The 3 new Piggy Banks, feature drawings by the 3 winners of a competition organised for this purpose and saw the participation of 91 children.
The distribution of the “new piggy” has already started and will remain in schools for a duration of 4 weeks, when they will be recollected during the week of the 7th December. The video links underneath will help you assemble the Piggy Bank.
