In the year 2013 “The story of Budulienko” in English and Maltese was published in Malta. Soon after its publication Jozef set out on his mission to various schools in Kenya with a suitcase full of books and gifts for poor Kenyan children.
The most recent book “Wings of a butterfly” was written in English on the author’s reminiscence of life in Malta and his view on what is happening in the outside world.
