Milied li Jimla l-Qlub marks an annual date with unity, generosity and altruism as the students and teaching staff at St. Francis School, Sliema, work together towards a common goal: raising money for those in need. For us at St Francis School, Milied li Jimla l-Qlub is, in effect, a concrete way of experiencing the real meaning of Christmas as we work together and help each other understand that helping others warms up the hearts of those who put aside all differences and believe in the meaning of Christian charity and love, donating not only money but also, even more importantly, our time. This year, the money we raised, was donated to help people suffering from domestic violence.
