Following a recent disaster, the need for blood was great. The only organization we could find to help us were the Knights of Malta. They really stepped up to the plate by organizing a blood drive and coming through for us. They also far exceeded our expectations.

God bless this fine group of men and women who give their time and energy to help people when they need it the most.

There are so many wonderful not for profit organizations in my area. It was hard finding just the right one to help. When I had a chance to attend a meeting of the Sovereign Hospitaller Order of Saint John, I knew I found just what I was looking for in an organization I could get behind.

Through my volunteer efforts, I have witness firsthand incredible generosity and kindness. This organization often times doesn't wait to be asked for help. They keep a close eye on what is happening in the community and find ways to help others, no matter who they are.

I am so proud to have found such a charitable group and look forward to being a volunteer for many years to come. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Honduras is by far one of the poorest countries in the world. Their hospitals have beds in the emergency room with no mattresses. One machine that normal performs many functions are broken and it now takes several machines to do the work of one. There are no computers for records, and patients often wait hours to get in with lines out the door and down the street. Many die due to a lack of even the simplest forms of medicines.

The Sovereign Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, shipped $6 million dollars in medicines to Honduras, and representatives flew there to see first hand the problems faced in this country.

This is just one example of the work this Order does on behalf of humanity. I am happy to say I am a proud donor to their Organization. Keep up the great work!

I recently read an article in our local newspaper with a wonderful story about the Knights of Malta. Who knew that an order of chivalry from the 11th Century still existed today? Certainly not me.

The article not only talked about the incredible history of this order, including building the first hospital in the world, but also detailed a good portion of the charitable work they do all over the world.

In a time when there is so much trouble and struggles in the world, it is nice to know that there truly still are knights in shining armor here to help. God bless you for what you do for humanity. There obviously will be a special place in Heaven for each and everyone of you.

We are also a non-profit organization. We help at risk mothers by providing them with the things they need to bring a child into this world, and to raise them right. We were instantly impressed with the Knights when they contacted us to donate a crib, changing table, diapers, and other supplies needed so badly.

Someday we hope to be able to return the favor. In the meantime we look forward to a continued relationship.

Our facility was in desperate need of wheelchairs, as ours were falling apart. The Sovereign Order of Saint John saved the day when they donated several of the finest wheelchairs we have every seen. We are now able to move our patients around the facility, as well as help them in and out to and from the parking lot.

These wheelchairs will last us for many years to come, and our patients always remark on their comfort. We pride ourselves in the service we provide to our patients, and we couldn't be happier than we are now that we met this organization. Thank you!!

Our school was burglarized, all our computers were stolen. For many of our students, English is their second language and these computers were vital to help them learn. Without hesitation, this fine organization stepped forward and donated more computers than were stolen. We barely skipped a beat in the student's learning process, and we are forever grateful to this group of Knights how rode in on their horses and saved the day...so to speak. Thank you!

God bless organizations like this group, the Knights of Malta. Their strong Christian beliefs come through in the work that they do. I was fascinated by not only their history, but the charitable contributions, including the donation of their time, ambulances, medical transport vehicles, medical equipment, bullet proof vests for police dogs, and more. And even though they are Christians, they help everyone, including non-Christians.

Many non-profit organizations are very specialized. We were happy when we found the Knights of Malta as they are very diverse in what they do, and just want to help those in need. There was no expectation of compensation for the help they offered me and my family, and the members I met just have good hearts in wanting to help those who need it most. I cannot possibly thank them enough for the assistance to our family.

When our family was in need of specialized medical equipment for our daughter, the Sovereign Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, came through. They were so kind and generous to work with, and I cannot tell you the impact this has had on our daughter. We feel like we have made friends for life.
