Malta Emigrants Commission


For many years now refugees in Malta have been helped in many ways.

Protection, basic needs, accommodation, recreation and schooling are sympathetically dealt with. This is made more effective by the official recognition of the Emigrants Commission as an Operational Partner of the UNHCR Branch Office in Rome. Help for refugees is also solicited by the Commission through its very useful contacts both domestic and foreign.

Records are kept and reports are issued from time to time.

Emigrants Commission has some 10 homes at its disposal, where approximately 150 of the most vulnerable refugees are accommodated, free of charge. Some of these homes are privately owned, while the others are church homes.

Should you need any help or information, please contact Mr. Charles Buttigieg or Mgr. Philip Calleja.
