About Us


The group was founded on the 9th May 2000 by a group of recipients of organs, on the initiative of its promoter Mr Alfred Debattista, who chaired an Ad Hoc Committee to lay a basis, draft a Statute and encourage recipients of organs to join in.

The group was officially launched on the 05th September 2000 at the Board Room, St. Luke’s Hospital, under the patronage and the participation of the Hon. Minister of Health, Dr L. Deguara M.D.M.P.


Our group is a philanthropic, non-profit making Organisation (NGO). Financially, we derive solely on the subscription of our members (€5 annually) and the support coming from Life Cycle Organisation and Bank Of Valletta plc. No public funding is involved.

The Group is registered with the Voluntary Organisations Commission and the Malta Health Network (MHN) as well as with the Companies Section of the Inland Revenue Dept. in terms of Law.


The members who formed the initial Ad Hoc Committee were confirmed in their posts during the first Annual General Meeting held at the Bank of Valletta Head Office in Sliema, on the 19th January 2001.
