Supporting women and men in need in Malta
Life is never plain sailing! Many times, you are cruising along without a care in the world, when an unexpected wave hits you. It may be a small wave, one which you overcome easily by yourself or with the help of your loved ones. But sometimes, you get hit by a huge squall, a storm that leaves you breathless, out of your depth—and, worst of all—feeling alone!
In short, you have been hit by a crisis!
Life Line Malta is a service within a pro-life non-governmental organisation - Life Network Foundation Malta. The foundation advocates that all human life is valuable and unique , from the moment of conception all the way to natural death. It provides the full resources and authentic information that a person may be seeking when facing an unexpected crisis.
Not every pregnancy is planned or even welcome. It can occur when a woman least expects it; when a girl is still at school; when a baby is the last thing that is wanted. It may be a result of abuse, incest, or violence. A pregnancy may be planned but medical complications affecting either mother or child can lead to a crisis. The news that the baby in the womb may have a disability, other medical complications or a low survival expectancy, either in the womb or after being born, can be overwhelming for the parents.
These and other situations signify anxiety – an unplanned pregnancy. Each pregnancy varies, and every woman may—or may not—experience life-shattering circumstances.
Life Line's mission is to endorse every human life from conception to natural death. Their aim is to help empower every person to make life-affirming choices. They provide the practical, psychological, and material assistance that a woman may need when her world is collapsing about her. And they do this by always prioritising life, both for the woman and the baby!
Life Line offers confidential care, friendly and professional support, and a safe environment for women and all those in need, not only during the pregnancy but also beyond by providing aftercare for the client until they become self-sufficient enough not to require it any longer.
Services offered include:
Life Line also operates a maternity home for women facing unplanned pregnancies. This home provides accommodation as needed, as well as full support and assistance from a skilled team of counsellors and volunteers, throughout the pregnancy as well as after.
Women and girls in these troubling situations need proper care, love, and support. They require help to deal with their situation and to move on with their life in a way that prioritises their general wellbeing and health.
Life Line offers all this to women during this most critical time in their lives. Experience has repeatedly shown that women and girls are, in fact, a lot stronger then they may initially believe themselves to be and that this process of empowerment provides the nudge needed to control their situation and overcome the difficulties that accompany it.
LifeLine believe in presenting choices that are genuinely intended to provide optimum care for both woman and child – at all times! The option of abortion is also discussed, with the reality of the trauma that it brings. LifeLine also assist and support any woman or girl who is considering or, indeed, has had an abortion and who comes for help.
Life Line Malta aims to provide a warm, friendly interface to help empower people to make life-affirming choices. They offer non-judgmental care and support to people in need, regardless of faith of who may seek help.
Life Line believe that women are strong and resilient in the face of adversity. If you are pregnant and feeling alone and overwhelmed, they want to give you hope. By offering you the right support and encouragement, they know that you can choose life.
Let us hold on to the beauty of life—all the way from conception until natural death!
