Report: Poland, Knights of Malta ink pact on health care

May 15, 2007

From Catholic World News:

The Knights of Malta and the government of Poland have signed an agreement to cooperate in the field of health.

Polish Lech Kaczynski and Fra’ Andrew Bertie, the head of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, met in Warsaw, where their deputies– Polish health minister Zbigniew Religa and the Grand Hospitaller, Baron Albrecht von Boeselager– signed the accord.

The agreement guarantees the Order of Malta’s assistance in improving the quality of health care, in particular for the poor and needy. The Polish Association of the Order of Malta will provide financial assistance for the project.

The Order of Malta administers a medical station at the Marian Shrine in Czestochowa, Poland. One of the primary missions of the Order is to help pilgrims.

Fra’ Andres Bertie is the first Grand Master of the Order of Malta to visit Poland since 1931. He made the trip on an invitation from President Kaczynski.
