The Grand Priory of the Maltese Islands organized an Art Exhibition and Auction to raise funds for the International Hospitaller Project of our Order that’s aimed at supporting the refurbishment of the kitchen at the Saint Louis Hospital, run by the sisters of Saint Joseph of the Apparition and sited on the site of the Crusader’s leprosarium. The Art Auction was held in Palazzo Ferreria at Valletta, which serves as the Ministry of the Family and Social Solidarity, over the weekend of 10th – 12th October 2014. 

The Hon. Dr. Michael Farrugia, Minister for the Family and Social Solidarity and the Grand Prior Chev, Prof. Charles Savona-Ventura formally opened the Exhibition. The opening was also attended by Sister Valerie Borg of the Order of St Joseph of the Apparition who is one of the Maltese nuns working in the hospital in Jerusalem and who thus could give a hands-on experience of the work that is being carried out there. The artists who exhibited their works included some leading Maltese artists. They donated 20% of the value of their art works for the event. The activity netted the sum of €1100 which will go towards the Order’s commitment towards the refurbishment project.
