“Every year, our customers display incredible generosity throughout the McHappy Day campaign, our largest annual fundraiser,” said Peter Hili, Managing Director of Premier Restaurants Malta, the operator of McDonald’s in Malta, as he presented the proceeds from the McHappy Day 2020 fundraiser to RMHC Chairman Martin Xuereb.

McDonald’s customers helped to raise €25,000 in aid of the Ronald McDonald House Charities’ Qawra Learning Centre during last November’s McHappy Day campaign. The funds were collected at Malta and Gozo’s nine McDonald’s restaurants during a week-long campaign.

“We are grateful to our customers who continue to support our favourite charity which is doing an amazing job with numerous children and young people who need support, their families and carers, while assisting some great organisations fulfil their mission,” Mr Hili continued.

Two years since its official inauguration, the Ronald McDonald House Charities Learning Centre has partnered with several charities and voluntary organisations, giving them access to its purpose-built premises from which to provide services and support to their clients and their families and carers. RMHC’s partners include ADHD Malta, the Autism Parents Association, anti-bullying charity bBrave, the Richmond Foundation, Smiling with Jerome, Caritas, the National Literacy Agency, MCAST, and the University of Malta’s Department of Counselling.

“Like all aspect of our lives, COVID-19 has brought significant changes to RMHC Malta’s Learning Centre. Over 2020 we continued adapting the way in which we help the community in line with our mission to keep families close,” RMHC Malta Chairman Martin Xuereb said.

In 2020, RMHC supported 225 children, young people and their parents through training courses and activities, assisted 95 professionals, and organised 84 counselling sessions. In co-ordination with Caritas, RMHC also helped deliver 3,546 solidarity meals across 12 weeks in Malta’s northern region.
