The Order of Malta, together with St Vincent’s Hospital, is a key stakeholder in Eastern Palliative Care, an organisation providing important care to persons facing end of life.

On Sunday, 25th July, EPC held its Run Melbourne event to raise funds for its palliative care work. Some $17,700 were raised. Of this amount, the largest contribution by far, at over $7,900, came from donations from members of the Order of Malta and their friends – a wonderful effort. A big thanks is extended to Consouer Lilian Antonelli for organising the Order’s fundraising effort.  A thanks also to Consouer Alicia Deak and Confrere Tim Gorton, who ran the course.

Members of the Order of Malta in Victoria Australia have been involved in home based palliative care services in Melbourne since 1992 and are currently partners in the Easter Palliative Care Association (EPC). EPC provides both terminally-ill clients and their families with medical and nursing services, psycho-social (social work, counselling, volunteers, music and massage therapy) and spiritual support. In addition to being a partner in the service, members are also volunteers for the Biography Program – an initiative that gives each client the opportunity to be seen, to be heard and to be valued.
