SOAR - Malta Chapter
Malta joined the SOAR family in March 2017. There are thousands of Armenians on Malta, but only 400-500 identify themselves as Armenians. The rest are locally assimilated and consider themselves Maltese. The Armenian Community of Malta was formally registered in 2009. The goal of the Community is to unite the efforts of all Armenians on Malta, to preserve and develop the Armenian culture and language, and to strengthen the friendship between the Armenian and Maltese people. The Armenian Community of Malta is the only organization that represents interests of Armenians on Malta and gives legal support to its members.
