Order of St John of Jerusalem of
Rhodes and of Malta
From the beginning of the year the Embassy started a collaboration with Italian Union of Enterprises - Confindustria, to promote different activities for disadvantaged children.
Active since November is the “Hot Meals” project, distributed by the Order’s volunteers to numerous rough sleepers every Thursday in one of the largest markets in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.
The Catholic Church in Bulgaria has opened the doors of its structures and the Order has decided to help Ukrainian refugees. We have sent donations for those housed in the city of Rakovski, 30 km from Plovdiv and in Russe where Caritas runs a crisis centre where Ukrainians stay while waiting to find better accommodations.
