“It’s about creating the kind of future we want to live in, both for ourselves, and for the poor and the sick”

Bequests to the Fund can transform the Order’s work worldwide. We are so grateful to Dunstan de Souza of the Australian Association who has pledged to leave a fixed amount of his estate to the Fund.

A recently retired managing partner of a law firm and a dedicated member of the Order, Mr de Souza has always devoted time in both his professional and private lives to serving his local community and helping the poor and the vulnerable.

A regular volunteer with Sydney’s ‘Coats for the Homeless’ initiative, Mr de Souza is a part of the Order’s annual Lourdes pilgrimage and a strong supporter of our global works, particularly the healthcare clinic in Dilli, Timor Leste. He believes that the Order’s universality, as well as its local reach, is one of its greatest strengths.

Having taken care of those around him during his lifetime, Mr de Souza has started to give thought to his legacy.

“The Order has been around for over 900 years, it’s not a given that it always will be, it needs our contribution. It is our responsibility both to serve in the present and to ensure that the Order will continue and grow its service in the future.”

Consider remembering the Forgotten in your will today. Large or small, legacies to the Fund transform lives. Contact Emily: [email protected] for more information.
