Grand Priory of Malta: Vehicle Donation to the Tiny Infants Parents Support Group (May 2011)
During the months of October to April, the Grand Priory of Malta, together with the Grand Priory of Gozo, organizes a national Lazarite Lottery campaign so as to be able to use the funds generated to further their Hospitaller assistance on the islands. To date, more than Euros 70,000 worth of donations and assistance has been given on the islands of Malta and Gozo by the Grand Priories with an extensive list of recipients being the beneficiaries of such Hospitaller donations.
During the Joint May Investiture of the Grand Priories, the officers of the Grand Priory, in front of the Grand Officers of the Order and the distinguished guests present, invited a delegation from the Tiny Infants Parents’ Support Group to receive a motor vehicle donation which was then added to the pool of cars that these volunteers use in order to perform their duties in aiding and assisting parents and families who are going through the trauma of having babies born prematurely and, worse still, stillborn babies.Speaking at the Investiture, the TIPS head of Delegation thanked the Grand Priories for their constant Hospitaller work and assured the Confreres and Consoeurs that the much needed vehicle would be immediately put to good use. The officers of the Tiny Infants Parents Support Group are all members of the Order and have been awarded the Award of Merit of the Companionate of Merit of the Order for their outstanding community work. Again, hearty congratulations to the Maltese and Gozitan Lazarite team.
