Malteser International Americas
Malteser International Americas is the humanitarian arm of the Order of Malta in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. The organization provides relief, works with locals on the ground and empowers people in the Americas to live with dignity. It has successfully met the challenge of working in partnership with those affected by disaster by creating opportunities for rehabilitation and development while ensuring that the most basic human needs are met. In the face of enormous challenge, it has consistently risen to the task, creating and expanding its programs in the wake of truly catastrophic events. From providing Mexican mothers with medicine to protect their children from HIV to providing emergency relief following the 2010 deadly earthquake in Haiti to feeding hungry children in Peru to preventing pregnant mothers from contracting the Zika virus in Colombia to supporting efforts to rebuild homes in a devastated city of New Orleans, Malteser International Americas’ work knows no international border. Malteser International has an excellent reputation for alleviating human suffering, as well as advanced technical skills and unique approach in the field of humanitarian aid, and offers hope to those in need into the United States and the entire Western Hemisphere.
