MediaToday Managing Editor Saviour Balzan will tomorrow discuss poverty in Malta on weekly programme Reporter on TVM.

Together with anti-poverty forum representative Fr Vince Magri and leading poverty researcher Leonid McKay, Reporter will delve into the types of poverty prevalent in Malta.

Does poverty exist in Malta? What type of poverty is predominantly present in Malta? What can poverty-stricken individuals do to alleviate their worries?

Reporter, the usual ‘hard talk' style programme will examine the possible correlation between poverty and the individual's geographical location in Malta. Are individuals residing in the south of Malta at greater risk of suffering from poverty than those living in the north?

Balzan will also discuss whether the individual is at fault for his demise or whether the system has failed.

The programme will also see numerous vox pops prepared beforehand by Jerome Caruana Cilia.

Reporter is produced and presented by Saviour Balzan, assisted by journalist Jerome Caruana Cilia and the MediaToday newsroom.

Reporter is aired live every Monday at 6:55pm on TVM. The programme is repeated on TVM2 on Monday at 10:15pm.

@ always hoping. I am hoping that Joseph Muscat will lower the sky high electricity bills that has impoverished the majority of the Maltese; including those still living under a roof, or those quoted by 'always hoping' who live and sleep in the fields. Successive PN leaders have contributed to new poverty that has raised its head once again, and indeed have managed to make -poverty 'contemporary' history!.
Dear Savior, If you want to see poverty and touch it right on our doorstep go and speak to women who are out on the streets trying to sell themselves. At my age sex do not work. But I meet them and they cry because of family problems that the state do nothing but lip service, these women with children. They brake my heart with their stories and I try to help in a quiet way. What about men stone drunk and sleeping in a field because they have no home. What about families of 5,6 or more living in a one room garage with a bucket as a toilet. Yet we have the wife of a minister making 13,000 euro a month. With that money at least we can uplift 100 families. Saviour bless you sir, this is what we need to talk about the abandoned state of fellow Maltese who in the end it could be us.
