Living Ability Not Disability (L.A.N.D.) Malta


Fundraising

Most of our members with a disability are wheelchair users and suitable transport equipped with tail-lifts has to be hired from a private entity at a hefty costs, two activities per month can amount up to EUR 600. Although members with a disability are charged a minimal fee of EUR 5. 00 in light of the inclusion concept, the rest of the costs are forked out from the organisation’s coffers. Besides other costs of communications, issuing of circulars, participation of seminars locally and most importantly paying costs of the non-disabled volunteers when attending events since their assistance is crucial. Total expenditure of yearly costs amount up to EUR 10,000.

History of fundraising events

 Since our organisation doesn’t receive any public funds we are thus charity-driven to raise funds in order to organise activities. Money raised is usually during Easter and Christmas lunches selling raffle tickets for items donated and money donated from some benefactors.
