L-Istrina 2022: A chance to give something back


After Christmas Day, comes Boxing day and locally this is celebrated in a special telethon event known as L-Istrina.

The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation organises the L-Istrina televised programme in an effort to raise funds for those in need of special treatment.

During this event, which usually takes place at the Kirkop Sports Complex, a number of performances, interviews and donations will be featured for a whole 12 hours.

Various local television stations will also broadcast this live event in tandem as a gesture of goodwill towards the cause. In Gozo, a separate event will also be proceeding in conjunction with the main event in Kirkop, however, those who happen to be on the sister island can pop by Villa Rundle gardens in Victoria, Gozo to see the event and activities there.

Viewers are encouraged to donate via the telephone numbers provided on screen whilst a special pledge line number will be given to those wishing to pitch in a larger sum of money. The latter is a great opportunity for friends and family or a local village group/club to get together and collect an amount of money which can be donated to L-Istrina.

You can watch L-Istrina today from 12:00 onwards on TVM, Net Television, ONE, Smash and F Living, with donation numbers displayed throughout the broadcast.


Others can also follow L-Istrina’s Facebook and Instagram profiles for more information.
