Grant Spotlight
Care for Vulnerable Children
The Order’s charisms of Tuitio Fidei and Obsequium Pauperum are interdependent, our faith expressed through our care for the forgotten, our care giving meaning to our faith. Rooted in these charisms, the Order’s work caring for forgotten children is an inspiration to the world.”
The Prelate of the Order of Malta, H.E. Reverend Monsignor Jean Laffitte
Each day around the world children are born into poverty, lacking access to food, medical care and education. As the most vulnerable members of society, children’s needs are too often forgotten when education and nutrition are vital to their future development.

The St. John’s Day 2019 grant awards from the Fund, made possible by our generous donors, will provide thousands of children with a safer birth, high-quality medical care, access to education and enough food to eat. The Fund supports the Order’s essential work providing forgotten children with what they need for a healthy, more prosperous future. Some of these grants are highlighted below.
A Safe Birth
The Fund is supporting four Order of Malta hospitals in Cameroon, Togo, Madagascar and the Ivory Coast, run by Order of Malta France. They provide medical care for mothers and babies in their fight to lower the infant mortality rate. 
A Supported Home
With a grant from the Fund, the Polish Association provides specialised home visits for families with premature or disabled children, providing medical care and supporting families in their first few days at home. 
A Secure Environment
Enabled by the Brazilian Association and with support from the Fund,
50 children living in the slums of Sao Paolo attend kindergarten and play and learn in a safe, nurturing environment while parents are at work.
And Enough to Eat
In Haiti, the Fund supports Malteser International in its provision of goats, chickens and household gardens for poor families: a source of sustainable food in an area where two thirds of families do not know where their next meal will come from
