“This project gives me hope and the I have found the family that had been missing for so many years.”

Davud lives alone and receives no support from his family. Due to health issues, he struggles to walk. The staff and volunteers at the Order of Malta’s “Old is Gold” centre in Albania help Davud with hospital appointments, medication and hot meals.

The centre provides daily support and social interaction for over 1,000 isolated elderly people.

As well as basic health care and access to social workers, the centre offers food and hot drinks, a chance to meet friends, read the newspaper and play cards, dominos or chess, creating a sense of friendship and community for many who would otherwise have no one to speak to.
