Looking back on a very close and trustworthy cooperation with Lazarus since 1980.
Krakow - Cologne The Polish Cardinal, Franciszek Macharski died at the beginning of August at the age of 89. Since the Communist era in 1980, he had been an experienced and valuable advisor to the Humanitarian Grand Priory Europe (GPEU )and its Lazarus Hilfswerk (LHW) during the organization of the Poland Aid Program in over several decades. He represented the Diocese of Krakow from 1978 to 2005. On June 30, 1979, he was elevated to the rank of Cardinal by Pope John Paul II. After the election of Pope John Paul II, Macharski became his successor as the Archbishop of Krakow. He was one of the outstanding figures of the Polish church. In 2009, he was appointed a Grand Cross Chaplain of the Order of St Lazarus. The Humanitarian Grand Priory of Europe is thankful for all his assistance on their behalf.

As a part of the Jubilee Year of Mercy announced by Pope Francis last year , the members of the Hungarian Jurisdiction of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem raised HUF 200.000 for the Éltes Mátyás Primary School and Special Education Methodological Institutionin Miskolc. This sum enabled them to make a gift of computer equipment and other devices suitable for the development of logical capacities for the use of the disabled children at the school.
This is not the first occasion that the Order has helped people in need in the town of Miskolc, since the charity programme known as the Carnival of the Poor is also linked to their name.
