The Initiative

The Wellness Pod aims to promote the well-being of children in families dealing with serious illness, grief and loss by providing educational and psychological assistance after school hours, help with homework, extracurricular activities and sessions with psychological professionals where needed.

Impact to date

The Wellness Pod is now reaching a greater number of children at any one time. In total, 153 children used KVF services throughout 2021 alone. This figure has by far surpassed the proposed target.

Claire Chircop
We would like to say a very big thank you to the Malta Social Impact Awards team, to the judges, to our mentor and to all those who supported 'the Wellness pod' in one way or another. A big thank you also goes to the audience who voted for our project. Thanks to the funds of the Wellness Pod, what started off as a very modest Foundation, is now a well-established one, providing a very essential service in a professional way.
