    Hi

    I'm keen to talk to ME patients in Malta as part of my challenge to raise awareness across Europe.

    If anyone would like to answer a few short questions or tell me their story that would be brilliant.

    I'll be there on Feb 25th to run the marathon and am working with the ME/CFS/Fibro Alliance there, so hopefully can make a bit of noise for research whilst I'm out there

    Thanks

    Mike

    I didn't know where to post this as it came from the Independent Malta:
    article outlines their Budget for 2020

    https://www.independent.com.mt/arti...emented-by-15-or-35-one-time-bonus-6736214773

    probably a complete coincidence but Clare Francis (president of AfME) was in Malta talking about an unrelated issue.

    are there any ME organisations in Malta? one for outreach @Andy

    Yes there is, I've interviewed Ruth from the Alliance over there. They do a fantastic job of keeping M.E in the public consciousness. http://www.mikeseumarathons.eu/malta.html

    You can find their group of Facebook too https://www.facebook.com/groups/me.cfs.fmalliance/
