The world is seeing the greatest displacement of people for over half a century. The Order of Malta is present along this journey assisting refugees, internally displaced persons and migrants in approximately 30 countries across the globe.

Owing to the refugee crisis, our naval presence in the Mediterranean is greater in 2016 than it was in 1571 during the Battle of Lepanto.

The Global Fund is helping bodies of the Order of Malta assist refugees across Europe and the Middle East.  As well as providing life-saving aid at sea, the Order also helps refugees at the Syrian border and create integration projects across Europe.
