Mission Fund was founded on 16th April 1984. It is a lay Catholic organization set up with the aim of assisting all Maltese missionaries. At present over 200 missionary stations in about 40 countries from Albania to Zimbabwe receive regular donations of € 2,000 on a roster basis, while the Maltese Bishops in Kenya, Brazil, Honduras, Libya and Albania each receive € 4,000. Maltese missionaries use donations to build schools, clinics and shelters for the homeless, to buy medicines, pay hospital fees and maintain vaccination programmes, and to better the lives of so many persons living below the poverty line.
