The Strength of life in sufferings

Gozo will be the venue of Pro-Life Day 2009 to be celebrated for the first time on Friday 30th January 2009. This is going to be launched by Guzeppa Debono Home and a Soiree will be organized at Ta’ Frenc Restaurant. It will include a sumptuous 4-course Gala Dinner prepared by the renowned chefs at Ta’ Frenc, an auction of paintings by the young Gozitan artist Christopher Saliba and also on site paintings by the same artist. Pieces of sculpture by another Gozitan artist, Victor Agius will also be auctioned. There will be time for instrumental music provided by various well known local musicians that will add to the magic of the Soiree.

Guzeppa Debono Home has been opened in Gozo by Bishop Nicholas J. Cauchi on the 8th of December 1985 and since then it has been a strong source of help to many in need. Formerly opened to help unmarried mothers and to offer them shelter until the delivery of the baby, it has now extended and developed into a strong organization that offers different services. It has been on the forefront to promote the value and culture of life through counseling, the media and all the other various seminars organized throughout the year. The Director of the Home, Ms. Maria Attard has shown a lot of commitment and dedication to this cause which has earned her ‘Gieh Ghawdex’ in 2008. She has also managed to raise awareness and to recruit a good number of volunteers who are always ready to help with all the various educational, social and fundraising activities.

The Soiree will include various important guest speakers: His Excellency Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo, the Hon. Giovanna Debono Minister for Gozo, the Hon. Dr. Justyne Caruana MP and Mrs. Catherine Gonzi. Tickets can be obtained from Bookworm Stationery in Republic Street, Victoria and D’Amato Record Store, Valletta.
