A most entertaining Event was held on the 15th of March 2015 at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta. It was an evening of magical music from the animated classics of Walt Disney Films. The idea of supporting this fund-raising event was originally launched by Grand Prior Emeritus Dr the Chev. J R Pace at the Annual General Meeting of the Grand Priory in January 2015. The Grand Priory through its NGO affiliate Ordo Sancti Lazari Melitensis Fundatio utilized its resources to advertize the event among its members and the public in general.

On January 12, The Budapest Commandery of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Knights of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem made donations  to the settlement Vereb in Fejér County. We were received by the mayor and  deputy (Ms. Mária Kurucz &  Erzsébet Kerekes) and Dr. Levente Molnos.

For more than ten years the Commendery of St.-Lawrence  of Finland has given a  silver lining to Christmas celebration for children in need. This year the donation was given in the form of gift cards (value 50 euros each) to be used in a department store for whatever purpose child´s  parents wish to buy as a Christmas gift. The gift cards were given to social workers of the City of Helsinki and representatives of the church to be further donated to the recipients.
