A recent UNESCO study shows that 244 million children are out of school. Not only is education essential for a better future, but school is a safe environment for children to play and grow.

This grants round, the Fund supported The Cruz de Malta Assistance Centre in the Jabaquara district of Sao Paolo, where 20% of the population live in slums, lacking basic sanitation and vulnerable to crime, drug abuse and human trafficking.

The project cares for 60 socially vulnerable children, giving them a safe space to learn and play, as well as nutritious meals, lessons in personal hygiene, and activities designed to benefit their social and emotional development.

There are 250,000 internally displaced people living in the Transcarpathia region of Ukraine, with supplies of basic goods such as food, medication and fuel running low. 

The Beregovo delegation of the Ukrainian Relief Service continues to process truckloads of aid, distributing it to those in need in the region as well as further into Ukraine. 

With support from the Fund, the Relief Service has purchased a forklift truck and transportation vehicles, and hired additional staff members, relieving the pressure on the team and increasing their capacity to carry out transports to communities in need.
