Loans to the Ministry for Gozo – Meals-on-Wheels Service

In 2000, The FSEG supplied a new Motor Vehicle (Van) to deliver meals-on-wheels to persons in their home. This donation was instrumental in the establishment of the first ever meals-on-wheels service in Gozo through a public-social partnership between the Gozo Ministry, the Friends of the Sick and the Elderly in Gozo, and the Moviment Azzjoni Socjali.

For 15 years, this vehicle delivered a yearly average of 6000 meals in Gozo, working 365 days a year; it eventually became unservicable in mid-2015.
