Order of Malta Australia


Video – The Order of Malta’s commitment in response to the war in Ukraine


More than a month has passed since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. In these difficult days, the Australian Association would like to thank everyone who has donated to our appeals for the Order of Malta relief effort for those affected during this crisis. As an Order globally we have seen a massive and choral response from all the structures of the Order of Malta. Primarily within Ukraine – where the courage and commitment of our volunteers is commendable – and neighboring countries who immediately stepped in with a multiplicity of assistance activities for the refugees.

Since day one of the war, people like you have been filling abstract concepts like solidarity, humanity, and empathy with life. We and our colleagues in Ukraine, as well as in the neighbouring regions, are overwhelmed and grateful for the incredible support that has reached us in the past weeks.

Thanks to countless donations and offers of help, we have been able to provide:

  • Around 4,000 tons of relief supplies to Ukraine with more coming every day
  • Around 1,000 meals for displaced people in Ukraine every day
  • Help to more than 275,000 people fleeing across the borders of neighbouring countries

The Order of Malta family appreciates your help and says thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
