Order of Malta units across the region have received a sizeable donation of PPE from a sister branch in Asia.
1,000 face masks have been donated to Westport Order of Malta to help them continue their frontline work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Like many charitable and frontline organisations the Order has been struggling to keep a sufficient supply of PPE to allow them to maintain their services.
The Hong Kong branch made the extraordinary offer of PPE owing mostly to the bonds of friendship forged between the two units in Lourdes last year.
Keelan Moran is a member of the Westport Order of Malta and he told Midwest News that this donation will be distributed to units across the region.
