Order of St John of Jerusalem of
Rhodes and of Malta
The Sovereign Order of Malta’s permanent missions to the United Nations in New York has joined the condemnation of Ukraine’s invasion, calling the international community to support the millions of refugees fleeing the country while the Russian troops advance on the ground.
Today the Order of Malta Permanent Observer Mission to the UN in New York was represented during an international video conference on ‘The Role of Youth in Tackling Poverty and Hunger at Local, Regional and International Levels’.
My delegation would like to thank the President of the Human Rights Council for her work and her statement, and express appreciation for the priceless action of the Council in the protection of human dignity, and in favor of the weak, the vulnerable, the most fragile, and those in need.
Ms. Special Rapporteur, the Sovereign Order of Malta is a strong supporter of your mandate and is proud to champion the cause of combatting trafficking in persons and protecting the human rights of victims through the work of the Order and our worldwide relief agency, Malteser International.
The Sovereign Order of Malta has a very strong presence in Palestine and Jerusalem, as we provide healthcare treatment and emergency relief to the local population, regardless of identity or ability to pay.
