OASI Foundation was founded in 1991 with the aim of promoting a healthy lifestyle away from substance abuse and also to therapeutically and professionally assist those persons and their families who have been affected from substance abuse and addiction.

We are living in a culture where substances have become more available, where to make use of recreational drugs (cannabis, cocaine and synthetic drugs) has become a way of being cool, trendy, relax and perform in life.

One the other hand, sports is scientifically proven to be a means of relaxation, helps performing better in life and assist in socializing – hence a means of preventing substance abuse while promoting addiction recovery.

This idea was brought forward by a beneficiary and is seen as a sign of support and encouragement for those who need to make that jump to improve their life by asking for help regarding their substance abuse.

Our Main aims:

  • Promote water sports as a means of staying away from substance abuse and addictive behaviour
  • To encourage people to seek help and if they need to do something to improve their life although they might find it difficult, they do it

Activity:

  • Walk from Xlendi to the area of Sanap Cliffs and back
  • Canoe activity
  • Jump in the sea

To encourage and support those who need to make that jump to improve their life by asking for help – that was the aim behind the second edition of Jump for Life organised by the OASI Foundation on the 30th of December at Xlendi Bay. This idea was brought forward by a person who made us of the OASI services to help him get over the addiction problem he had and hence the aim.

The event was divided into 3 activities: First a walk from Xlendi Bay to the limits of Sanap Cliffs and back, soon after canoeing took place. The climax of the event braving the cold sea. Well over 60 participants.

The participants’ immediate comments after the jump was of satisfaction, expressing a feeling of natural high and thrill. The event was filled with enthusiasm for the good cause.

The participants were served with hot beverages prepared by the Foundation’s volunteers, to warm up after the cold dip.

The OASI Foundation would like to thank the Ministry of Gozo for being our main sponsor for this event. A big thank you also goes to UniQ- Tiles & Ceramic Boutique, Gozo Segway Tours ,DQ Contractors Malta and Xlendi Water Sports. Last but not least the OASI Foundation would like to thank everyone that helped especially the volunteers.

We would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year
