The Malta Ostomy Association previously known as The Ostomy Club was founded in 2012. Its primary aim is to help other people who are considering or going through ostomy surgery, thus not feeling alone.
This support group is also open to relatives and care-givers. The second aim is to create and raise awareness. From time to time we carry out awareness campaigns that help to lessen the stigma around ostomy surgery.
