Over 100,000 members, medical and social care personnel and volunteers worldwide work to help those in need. In thanking Lord Lingfield, the Grand Master spoke in particular of the traumatic situation in the Middle East and its impact on Europe, and the Order’s work to help refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs).
