Anti-poverty campaigner and rock star Bob Geldof performed in concert in Malta to raise funds for YMCA. The concert was held on the 28th of June 2006. Bob Geldof, the creator of the Live Aid and Live 8 concerts, has pledged his support to YMCA, and the Malta event aimed to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless in Malta. Bob Geldof's commitment to YMCA's cause was a huge boost for the charity.

YMCA has worked hard to turn the spotlight on Malta's homeless in recent years. In a typical year, the YMCA assists 9,000 social cases, although not all homeless. About 300 people officially don't have a roof over their heads in Malta, where many people still find it hard to believe homelessness is a big issue.
