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. 

Upcoming Project


Children in Need Foundation intends to recruit  its own psychotherapists that will be seconded to Fondazzjoni Sebh in order to build resilience and mental wellbeing for children currently living in residential care.

This pilot project in collaboration with Fondazzjoni Sebh will run in all of their homes and will provide weekly therapy to the 40-45 children under their care.

Most Recent  Event

On the 30 April and the 1st May 2023, Claudio and Daniel succeeded in running 200km around the Marsa athletics track. 


Both the public and businesses participated and contributed generously towards the upcoming project. To date the Foundation has secured over €375,000 in funding. This will ensure that the project can run for the first two years and we are confident that we will succeed to see it through for the entire 3-year period.

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.

In every possible way, The Children in Need Foundation genuinely seeks to provide support to vulnerable children.


Their satisfaction is putting a smile back on children’s faces and they do a very good job at that! Thanks Dan and team!
