Following an appeal made by Reverend Kim Hurst in an article on the Times of Malta in January 2017, the Reverend was invited for an interview on the ‘Times Talk’ TV show with senior journalist Kurt Sansone, to discuss poverty in Malta and the work conducted by the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation.
Rev. Hurst states that since its opening, Foodbank Lifeline has helped an increasing number of people who are not able to afford food due to several social and economic issues, including high rent and other bills. She also discusses how poverty in Malta is relatively hidden, because as a nation there is an element of pride involved, so not many people are aware of how serious the situation is.
