Isabelle Cassar and Joseph Galea have been voted best mum and best dad by the Malta Baby & Kids Directory.
Their stories, which are featured in the latest edition of the directory, prove that raising children through difficult circumstances is all doable, a spokesman for the publishers says. The awards were presented to Ms Cassar and Mr Galea by the Prime Minister’s wife, Catherine Gonzi.
The Malta Baby & Kids Directory this year marks its fifth anniversary and the publishers felt it appropriate to honour their readers – the parents.
The Best Mum and Best Dad Awards campaign was launched earlier this year supported by Mothercare, HSBC, Mamas & Papas and Island Caterers. Six finalists were chosen for each category and the winners were chosen by readers.
The latest edition of the Malta Baby & Kids Directory boasts a colourful front cover by seven-year-old artist Martina Portelli who won a painting competition on the theme Under The Maltese Sea.
