Welcome to the career site of Malteser International at Impactpool!
We are the worldwide humanitarian relief agency of the Sovereign Order of Malta. Our mandate is to provide relief and recovery during and following conflicts and disasters. We are primarily active in the field of health, in which we have almost 60 years of continuous experience.
Christian values and humanitarian principles form the foundations of our work: bringing aid to people regardless of their religion, background, or political convictions at over 100 Projects in more than 20 countries.
We provide emergency relief in crises such as natural disasters, epidemics, or armed conflicts. During acute crises, teams from Malteser International are on the ground as soon as possible to provide emergency medical care, and ensure the supply of food and other essential aid materials as needed. Supporting the health of the person in an integrated way is the central aim of our work. We do this by establishing functioning medical structures, and protecting health by ensuring people have access to adequate nutrition, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). We take a holistic approach to our work: seeking to strengthen the resilience of people in especially vulnerable regions against future crises. Accordingly, Disaster Risk Reduction plays a central role in our projects, while we work to maintain high standards of quality and transparency at all times.
The Sovereign Military and Hospitaler Order of St John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta is one of the oldest institutions of Western and Christian civilization. The lay Catholic Order has 13,500 members who have committed to the exercise of Christian virtue and charity. The Order of Malta remains true to its founding principles, summarized in the motto “Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum”: nurturing, witnessing, and protecting the faith; and serving the poor and the sick. The Dames and Knights bring these principles to life by engaging in voluntary work, humanitarian assistance and medical and social activities. Today, the Order carries out charitable and humanitarian activities in over 120 countries.
The Order is based in Rome and has full diplomatic relations with 107 countries, as well as to European and international organizations. It has permanent obsever status at the United Nations. Thanks to this diplomatic network, the Order can react quickly and flexibly to crises and disasters. Its embassies also have the mission of supporting the medical and humanitarian activities of the national associations of the Order and Malteser International. As a neutral and non-political party, the Order is able to act as mediator in civil and armed conflicts and to intervene as a protective force.
