In 2022, the Global Fund for Forgotten People released a three-minute film to help viewers understand how the Order of Malta serves the world’s neediest. The film was submitted by the Polish Embassy of the Order of Malta to the international FilmAt Festival competition and won in the category for ‘Fundraising, Non-profit, CSR’. This week, His Excellency Niels Lorijn collected the award on the Fund’s behalf.
The film demonstrates the variety and importance of the worldwide work of the Order of Malta, and how all of its works are driven and strengthened by love. The film also focuses on the Global Fund for Forgotten People and the role this organisation plays in supporting the Order’s work with the Forgotten: the persecuted, the elderly, the homeless, abandoned and disabled children, refugees, people with diseases that most think have been cured long ago.
The film was created to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Fund and produced in six languages: English, French, Italian, German, Modern Standard Arabic and Chinese. It contains footage from Argentina, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Lebanon, Mexico, France, South Korea, USA, Italy, Bethlehem, Albania, Lithuania, Romania and Ukraine, highlighting the truly global nature of the Order’s work.
