One of Malta’s leading student and youth platform is teaming up with the island’s biggest educational institution for a major project set to support both the student and healthcare worker community.
FreeHour, a platform with an audience of over 35,000 local youths and students, are giving back to the student community and health workers who have had a challenging time during the ongoing pandemic.
They’ve now officially partnered up with the University of Malta for the 2021 season – and to celebrate the new collaboration, they are launching various campaigns promoting several subject matters, including a Student Solidarity Fund, Mental Health for Students and thanking Health Care Workers.
As the “voice for students in Malta”, FreeHour signed a partnership with the University of Malta rector, signalling exciting times for the organisation as well as their student community, who will be able to benefit from direct news from University, more diverse content and even future app upgrades.
But these new campaigns will also prove how important it is for organisations to give back to the community who made them.
1. Thanking health care workers for their sacrifices.
To thank health care workers for their incredible and selfless dedication during the pandemic, FreeHour have displayed a huge banner at University’s Gateway, with a beautiful message thanking workers.
Through FreeHour’s platform, students across all Malta were also asked to provide items like flowers, personalised messages, and anything else that shows their respect and support to the hard-working community.
These flowers and cards were personally handed to frontliners at Mater Dei, and a beautiful appreciation corner was also set up last Friday at Gateway (near the Vaccine centre), in an effort to commemorate their work and put a smile on their faces – all on behalf of the student community.

3. Last but not least, this partnership will be seriously addressing student mental health in 2021.
On top of this, FreeHour will be using its platform to create a series of compelling and wide-ranging content, specifically promoting the importance of mental health including emotional stories, tangible tips, support lines and other information that will have a direct impact on our next generation of youngsters.
From financial issues to mental issues, FreeHour is making it clear that they want to support Malta’s students, no matter what struggles they may be facing.
