Abstract: The so-called Charitable Institutions of Malta and Gozo were organizations devoted to relieving the poor financially; providing them with food and shelter; nursing and treating them when sick either in their own homes or in hospitals; providing care for the aged and the mentally ill and assisting the helpless in any other way such as protecting unwanted babies and orphans and ransoming slaves. In practice all these activities took the form of three services: 1. Hospital Services 2. District Medical Service 3. Social Welfare.
