Order of Malta Australia


Preparations for World Day of the Poor underway


Members and volunteers of the Order of Malta in the Northern Territory gathered this week to pack 100 hygiene bags for the homeless in preparation for World Day of the Poor.

Each pack contained soap, tooth brushes and paste, combs, deodorants, small towels, shaving cream, shavers, and a few hair accessories.

The Fourth World Day of the Poor will be observed on 15 November 2020. The theme is “Stretch forth your hand to the poor”, taken from the book of Sirach.
