    And he deserves it.

    The Malta independent has clearly resorted to google translate for some of this article, hehe:

    Calleja was also congratulated on his philanthropic activities, in particular the Joseph Calleja Foundation which was created to support Maltese children from helpless families and young artists to advance their artistic and musical talents.
    Although I sometimes have felt like a helpless family, particularly during the toddler years.
