Rotary Hands-On Day - Dar il-Wens

Rotary Club Malta is holding its next Hands-On Day at the independent living apartments premises of Dar il-Wens in Paola on Saturday the 23rd April between 9:30am and 4:00pm where volunteers will undertake a series of tasks to help prepare the house to accommodate new people with a disability.  The Fondazzjoni Wens runs homes and apartments for the disabled to provide them with independent living with supervised assistance and services to enabling people with disabilities to fully participate in community life.  These are places of respite and support that ensure optimal training of these persons to attain independent living skills.  >> Read more about Fondazzjoni Wens.  

The tasks for the day include painting of some rooms, painting of an internal staircase and the removal of considerable amounts of soil from the garden to awaiting trucks, which can only be done through a manual chain of people due to the inability to utilise mechanical equipment. This will be an all-day fun event with food, drinks and music being provided. 

The event will be a great help to Dar il-Wens whose resources are limited and are always stretched to provide services to their clients.  

As has happened with previous Hands-On Days, we are seeking to gather a number of volunteers to perform these jobs and sponsors to provide materials.

This will be the eight Rotary Hands-On Day and follows  extremely successful events held at Dar il-Kaptan, Dar Jeane Antide, the Nigret Orphanage in Zurrieq, Dar Fejda and Inspire. The objective of the Rotary Hands-On Days is to get Rotarians, non-Rotarians, families and friends to go up to a place requiring help for a fun day where we will spend energy, more than money, making a difference. It is incredible what a difference we have made in the past events.

So as to arrange all the logistics, it is important for us that participants register their attendance.  Please register each person coming with you.  

If you have a gardening shovel, please bring it along with you.


Meeting Time: 9.30 am

Address: 8, Triq Hal Salfieni, Paola


Please Register so we can plan who will be attending and can cater appropriately for equipment and food.
