Faith, Hope and Charity. But the
greatest of these is Charity."

THE ORDER OF MALTA

Who and what is the Order of Malta?

Founded in 1099, the Order of Malta is the oldest Catholic charitable organisation in the world. Its headquarters are in Rome and as a Sovereign Organisation, it sends Ambassadors throughout the world. It has observer status at the United Nations and attracts funding from national governments, the European Community and the United Nations. The bulk of the funding comes from private individuals and your help is much needed for the on-going work in the five charitable enterprises we focus on:-


An elderly refugee and a local employee of the Order enjoying a meal at Sanski Mos in Bosnia.
The centre for refugees provides food and washing facilities for up to 150 people every day.

l International emergency aid

The Order responds with overseas aid to the most harrowing crises caused by war and natural disaster throughout the world. Recently the British Association has assisted in Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Romania, Peru, Gujerat, Mozambique and El Salvador. We are also currently sponsoring Blessed Gerard's Aids Care Centre in Kwa Zulu and the Boka old peoples' home in Serbia. Our association works closely with the Emergency Corps of the Order of Malta (ECOM) in Brussels with finance, provisions and volunteer manpower.

Our many projects include pilgrimages to Lourdes and Walsingham and other respite care holidays with full medical support. In Central Scotland we provide the Order of Malta Dial-a-Journey minibus service for people with disabilities.


ECOM staff and equipment are ready to go wherever they are needed.

l The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth

The Order's well-known hospital in St John's Wood, London, specialises in orthopaedic surgery and childbirth. The St. John's Hospice looks after all the needs of those who are terminally ill in a compassionate and Christian environment.
