Letter: Maltese orphans

The Independent Online
Sir: R G J M Earl (Letters, 25 September) alleges that when in Malta

during the war, "the late Dr Boffa showed me an orphanage which he assured

me was reserved solely for the children of priests". There has never been

such an orphanage. Your correspondent's allegation is completely unfounded.

It definitely does not do justice to the orphanages set up and run by

priests with great sacrifice and dedication.
