Charities and non-profit organizations in Malta

There are many charitable and non-profit organisations in Malta. We have selected a few for your consideration.

For the most part, they exist thanks to generous donations from Maltese and expatriates.


This organization was founded in 2017 and oversees voluntary work of Maltese and expatriates who work together to improve the quality of the environment in Malta, in particular by cleaning and removing waste in nature.

Despite strict regulations on waste sorting in Malta, too many people still throw away their waste wherever they feel, and thus pollute the archipelago.

To follow them or to make a donation, you can visit their Facebook page: Zibel, where you will find all necessary information.

Happy Paws Charity Organization

The purpose of this charity is to help wild animals have a better quality of life. In Malta, there are a lot of wild animals, including cats, a true symbol of the nation, and a protected animal. Some associations are dedicated to improving their well-being.

You can help them in different ways:

  • Give away items you no longer use, which can be used either at the clinic or resold for fundraising purposes. The items are to be given in boxes at one of their stores in Santa Venera or Marsaskala.
  • You can volunteer and work in the store a few hours a week, or, if you are interested in taking care of the animals, you can participate in a clinic internship.
  • Make a donation: Directly by bank transfer or by SMS to +356 5061 8938 to give €6,99 or to 356 5061 9239 to give €11,65.

More information is available on their website: Happypaws

Animal Care Malta
