Emergency Relief Fund
The Order’s Emergency Relief fund is to assist in times of crisis, including refugee support and emergency relief to those impacted by disaster or conflict.
Currently the Order of Malta Australia is assisting the efforts in Lebanon’s capital city of Beirut, after a massive explosion at the port sent an enormous blast wave that devastated communities within a six-mile radius, leaving at least a hundred people dead and some 4,000 injured. The explosion comes at a difficult time for Lebanon. In addition to carrying a huge burden of the region’s refugee crisis, the country is suffering its worst economic crisis in decades. Almost half of the Lebanese population live in poverty, with unemployment at 35 percent. Hospitals are also struggling to cope with a rising number of coronavirus cases.
