Order of Malta Activity Report 2019


The Order of Malta Activity Report 2019 has been published, illustrating its core activities, as well its health and social care, diplomatic and religious missions in the 120 countries in which it operates. Published every two years, the Activity Report covers the most significant moments and events in the Order’s life and provides a comprehensive overview of its multiple initiatives.

The publication opens with a message from the Grand Master, Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto, and offers exclusive interviews with the Order’s leadership, such as the Grand Chancellor and Grand Hospitaller, as well as with those responsible for some of its most important activities, including the Syrian refugee programmes of Malteser International – the Order of Malta’s international relief agency – and the projects for the Roma communities and for medical services in central America, to cite just a few examples. The publication, enriched with many pictures from all five continents, also features interviews with personalities external to the Order, such as Cardinal Peter Turkson – Prefect of the Holy See’s Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development – on the challenge of integrating refugees and migrants, and Jamilah Mahmood – Under Secretary General for Partnerships at the IFRC – on promoting a policy of reception and respect for every individual.

Also listed are the conferences in which the Order has participated or organised, the main institutional meetings of recent years, the signature of cooperation agreements and the opening of diplomatic relations with other countries. A section testifies to the daily actions of thousands of members, volunteers and professionals in each country.

With over 120 pages packed with information, the Activity Report is confirmed as a useful instrument for discovering more about the Order’s life and actions and for appreciating the Christian spirit that manifests itself in all corners of the world, from western metropolises to isolated communities in the poorest countries.
