About The Children in Need Foundation

Since 2000, Daniel Abela together with others, has embarked on a number of charity challenges to raise funds for vulnerable children. In 2013 the Foundation was officially set up to continue in the steps of its founder.


Since then it has carried out several projects all intended to support the wellbeing of children. To find out more about past projects, click on the link below. 



Since September 2023, The Children in Need Foundation has launched its Mindful@home project and recruited 3 psychotherapists who have been seconded to Fondazzjoni Sebh in order to support the 42 children in their care and aid them build resilience and mental wellbeing.


Thanks to the very generous donations of corporates and the public, this pilot project has been made possible. In collaboration with Fondazzjoni Sebh this service will run for the next 3 years in all of their homes.

We have been working with The Children in Need Foundation for many years now.


Together we have been able to bring smiles and happiness to numerous Maltese sick children and their families by offering them precious moments during a cost-free

all-in vacation at Disneyland Paris.

We reached out to The Children in Need Foundation during the pandemic to assist us in strengthen the WiFi system of two of our residential homes. This facilitated the online schooling experience of our children. 


This became a positive collaboration and over the past years they stood by us whenever we reached out to them, making sure to brighten the days of children in our care.  Thank you for your ongoing and prompt support.
