GRTU calls for donations of food parcels and pharmaceuticals for Libya

Mindful of the scenes being played out before our very eyes in our neighbour Libya, GRTU is calling on Maltese businesses and their partners and counterparts in the EU to donate items that are running out in Libyan hospitals.


In the medical field, GRTU is calling for Accident and Emergency items and pharmaceuticals, antibiotic preparations in all forms, bandages, IV fluids, analgesics and pain management medications, orthopaedic supplies, splints, sutures and any other medications and medical consumables that are consonant with injuries normally seen in a war zone. Monetary donations are also being accepted.

GRTU is making arrangements for donated items to be gathered in one central location in Malta for onward delivery to Libya as soon as the situation allows it.

We are appealing to Malta's traditional generosity at this time. Libya is not just another country. It is a country that we Maltese have known and worked in for many years. By and large, our workers and businesses in Libya have contributed to Malta's current standard of living. Many Maltese have Libyan friends and associates, and there are ties of friendship that go beyond the political rhetoric of the past. Libya is one of our closest neighbours, and it's our Christian duty to help them in this hour of need.

GRTU has set up a special email address on . One can also call on 21232881 and ask for Miss L. Said, or else on telephone number 99499401.


GRTU sets up an account for donations to the Libyan people


GRTU advises that it has set up a bank account for people who wish to donate money in aid of the Libyan people's needs at the present critical time.

The details are as follows

Bank account number:    0144010268800 (Lombard Bank)

Iban No:             MT48 LBMA 0500 0000 0001 4401 0268 800

Swift Code:                       LBMAMTMT

GRTU is urging Maltese businesses and other interested parties to donate money, specific food items and also pharmaceuticals and medical goods normally used in Accident and Emergency environments.

We have been advised that the specific items most in need are baby foods, nappies / diapers, and baby milk. Tinned or packed food is also being accepted.

Food items can be delivered to the GRTU premises in Republic Street, Valletta. For bulky food items one can call on 99499401 for specific arrangements.

Pharmaceuticals and medical goods are being collected in a specific place. In this regard, we ask parties who wish to donate these items to call on 99499401 as well so that arrangements can be made.

GRTU wishes to thank all those who have already contributed so generously, whilst at the same moment we urge those businesses who can give to do so. The situation in Libya is very critical and whatever Malta sends will be of great help.
