The Order

The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem can trace its rich history back to the late 11th century and the downfall of the Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Crusades. St Lazarus is recognised as an international Non-Government Organisation (NGO) and is actively involved in works largely associated with medical care, primarily through the operation of medical facilities such as hospitals and clinics. In addition it is actively involved in a broad array of charitable activities.
