Xewkija Local Council, in collaboration with Banda Filarominka Prekursur, have reached an agreement with the Parliament Secretary for Rights of People with Disability and Active Ageing, to start a meeting centre for the Active Ageing in the Banda Filarmonika Prekursur Hall.
Parliament Secretary Dr. Justyne Caruana, announced that the centre in Xewkija, is one of three which will be operating in Gozo and will include a varied programme just like the ones already active in Malta, in which the Secretariat activated a life-long learning programme. She sustained that this project is part of the Goverment's campaign to involve the elderly on a national scale, and this after the Secretariat called for collaboration from Local Councils to provide such service for the elder.
The Parliament Secretary also mentioned the Night Shelter project which is being held together with the Church. Dr. Justyne Caruana visited such sites to follow progress works on these projects.
