One year of war in Ukraine – please help those impacted!


Dear Friends,

One year ago today, the unimaginable became true: A war in Europe erupted. The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine and its consequences is one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of our time. The suffering of the people on the ground is beyond imagination and seems to have no end: More than 17 million people need assistance.

From day one, the Order of Malta worldwide family stood alongside the people affected by the war. Local Order of Malta Associations and the International Relief agency of the Orderof Malta, Malteser International, have provided medical assistance and food to refugees at the borders, welcomed them in neighboring countries, distributed around 8,700 tons of relief supplies and provided psychosocial support.

All this was only possible thanks to the incredible support of donors: We are more than grateful!

And we continue: We stay at the side of the people in Ukraine and the refugees as long as they need our support.

One year has passed since the nationwide war of aggression on Ukraine. And we must not lose sight of the need in Ukraine, despite all the misfortunes in the world. The people still need our support. The Order of Malta will expand its psychosocial support programs and deliver relief supplies, especially to the east of the country. A marathon of reconstruction awaits us, for which we need perseverance. And above all, your continued support.

Help us to help  and give hope for the future to the people of Ukraine. Gifts $2 and more are tax deductible for Australian taxpayers.

Please give what you can.

Yours sincerely

John Murphy

National Hospitaller
