The medical care centre – visited by Grand Master Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto when he was in Germany for the Ettal International Summer Camp in August – has 30 doctors, dentists, dental assistants and social workers. Fra’ Giacomo expressed his great admiration and gratitude to these volunteers.
The centre has also organised a translation service, in particular for Romanian and Bulgarian. In 2018, 76% of patients came from outside Germany, especially from eastern Europe, and only 16% were native Germans Again in 2018, more men than women attended the centre and the majority of patients were aged between 18 and 40 years, whereas minors accounted for 11%.
