‘The Order has provided food and medicine for my little one which he would not otherwise have access to. I am very thankful!’

Lumi and her son live in a poor and isolated rural community in Albania.  Levels of infant and child mortality in Albania are disproportionately high, in rural areas they are twice the rates of cities. 

With support from the Fund, The Order of Malta’s new centre in Albania provides food, medicine, classes in hygiene and education on how best to care for children for poor families, fighting disease and malnutrition, and helping families learn how to give their children the best start in life.
