Ministry To Migrants -
                   "Out Of Africa... Into Malta..."

…is our mission project among the thousands of refugees and other immigrants from across Africa who are now in Malta. The island has always been a melting pot for people from different cultures as it is on the front line of the route from the African continent to Europe.
Many migrants are economic migrants – but many more, including women and children, have fled for their lives, from war and terror. They cannot return home - there is no home.

A mayor decision for this project was the renovation and transformation of the former crypt into a hub called the "International Center".  It has become the home for Malta Microfinance, Blue Door English (BDE), African Media Association Malta (AMAM), The Foodbank Lifeline Foundation and other activities.

"OUT OF AFRICA… INTO MALTA" was founded in 2010 and grew into a major mission project. 

It has been a project of the Church of Scotland Guild Partner and churches from as far afield as Bermuda and Sri Lanka were supporting us in this work. 

At the beginning we got cool-boxes and fans to relieve stifling summer conditions in the cabins of the refugee centers, quilts, blankets, and children’s clothing in the cold and damp of Malta’s winter months. These were just some initiatives we started with.

Soon after that the project developed into two further schemes, Malta Microfinance  and English Language Classes for migrants which both run very successfully (see main mission page).
