On Monday 14 November 2022, ALIVE Charity Foundation will be presenting another generous donation to The Research Trust (RIDT). The media event will take place on the 3rd Floor of the BioMedical Building at the University of Malta Campus in Msida.


Cyclists from the foundation will have the opportunity to visit the researchers in their laboratories. This will help the cyclists to learn more about the research they are supporting every time they take on a challenge.

ALIVE Charity Foundation has fast become a recognised non-governmental organisation registered under the Commission of Voluntary Organisations (VO 801). Being the first foundation locally to raise funds for medical research in Malta, ALIVE always believed that the most effective way to combat cancer was to treat those who may be affected and most of all carry out strategic research. In this way, one can speed up diagnosis, identify causes and eventually identify cures. This is why the Foundation’s aim has always been to fund Ph.D. Scholarships at the University of Malta through RIDT.


Since its inception in 2013, with the support of corporate companies and the Maltese Community at large, ALIVE Charity Foundation has donated over €135,000 towards breast cancer research, €170,000 towards children’s cancer research and €80,000 towards a children’s recreational area within Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre. Between 2019 and 2021, the sum of €227,000 was donated to the University of Malta in order to sustain seven cancer research projects. The enthusiasm and the momentum created over the past years was abruptly halted by the pandemic outbreak. Nevertheless, conscious of the fact that the University of Malta requires financial support to fund cancer research, this year ALIVE Charity Foundation are back with another donation.

Alive Charity Foundation is a registered NGO under the Office of the Commission of Voluntary Organizations – VO 801.
