Malteser international
For over 65 years, with over 100 projects annually in 25 countries worldwide, Malteser International has stood by those affected by poverty, disease, conflict and disaster, helping them lead a healthy life with dignity. We provide relief, vital health care, nutrition, clean water, hygiene, and sanitation, and disaster preparedness to vulnerable people in North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. ˧

In the Americas, we operate major projects in four key countries: Colombia, Haiti, Mexico and Peru. We also provide disaster relief and recovery in the United States, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in countries where our assistance is requested. ˧

We are a non-governmental organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) since 2018 at the United Nations. We provide emergency relief after disasters and supports recovery efforts, bridging the gap between humanitarian aid and sustainable development. ˧

Malteser International Americas is an affiliate of Malteser International, the global humanitarian relief organization of the Order of Malta, a lay religious order. With the help of community-based partners and local Order of Malta Associations, children and families live healthier lives with dignity. We work closely with the three U.S. Associations: American , Federal and Western. ˧
