“It was a humbling experience to hear first-hand the stories of where Ukrainian refugees had come from, and to be shown photographs of the places and people they had left behind.”

Staff at the Sisters of the Cross homes in Lebanon need to distribute this quantity of medicine three times a day to keep their disabled residents safe and well.

Lebanon is undergoing its worst economic crisis in 30 years. Medicines are no longer subsidised by the government and many people are struggling to afford them.

The Fund is working with the Sisters of the Cross, the Order of Malta Lebanon, Ordre de Malte France and the Grand Priory of Bohemia to supply vital medications from antipsychotics to analgesics, to 2,500 disabled people in five institutions across Lebanon.

The long-term effects of coronavirus, combined with a lack of care can detrimentally impact a person’s physical and mental wellbeing.

Supported by the Fund, the Chilean Relief Service’s  Rehabilitation Centre in San José, is supporting patients with respiratory issues, the number of which has significantly increased since Covid.

Patients not only receive high quality medical attention, but also have an opportunity to receive support and chat to volunteers, particularly important as many are vulnerable and been isolating for over two years.

Thank you to Rafa, who asked for support for the Order of Malta response to the crisis in Ukraine for his 16th birthday.

The funds raised by Rafa’s generous gesture could pay for food and hygiene products for six refugees in Latvia, making sure their basic needs are met.

He received one of our #unforgettablegifts, a pair of socks handmade during a craft workshop for elderly women in Lithuania.
