It’s been a year since the charity organisation Fidem was launched and thanks to every donator’s generosity, they’re finally able to share with the world their efforts made over the last 12 months.

Their extensive work involves aiding those affected by domestic violence, working closely with a number of shelters including Dar Qalb ta’ Ġesu and St Jeanne Antide – a halfway home for young women.

In commemoration of their first anniversary, Fidem invited a number of guests to explore Nickie Sultana’s ‘Highlighting Heritage’ exhibition at the Wignacourt Museum last weekend in Rabat.

Jewelry made during Fidem’s workshops were on sale as well throughout the event and there was also a speech given by Dr Sabine Cabourdin Agius.

“Tonight we are celebrating life by appreciating the extraordinary courage of victims of physical and emotional abuse,” Dr Agius told those in attendance, “I am super proud to present the first of a series of handmade jewellery displayed here tonight.”

Nickie Sultana, was the artist who provided the paintings.

“When Nickie approached me about her honourable wish to donate a part of her sales to Fidem Foundation for her upcoming art exhibition my eyes smiled,” says Dr Agius.

A portion of proceeds from the art sales were donated to Fidem as well as any funds raised through jewelry sales.

 

So far, the charity has helped over 40 women and some 36 children, while pledging their services to various homes and shelters for another 9 months. There are other learning centers, schools and homes that Fidem would love to engage with, but in order to do so, they need to meet people – which is where these events come into place and why they hold such importance.

If anyone would like to purchase the art, it will remain on display at the Wignacourt until November 17th and the jewelry will be on sale for a while as well.
