We found that it is very necessary for fostered elderly people who live alone and often feel forgotten and useless, – said president of Order of Malta Relief Organization Romas Abunevičius. – Elderly people got a lot of wonderful emotions and joy from the volunteers who greeted them. Many of them mentioned that they had no such unforgettable moments for many years and this was the main reason which encouraged us to organize a “Maltesers Easter” campaign this year. “
