This service has a special mission since it reminds us that we all need to know how to help others and save their lives. First aid competence is extremely important for all Malteser volunteers since they work with seniors who often need such assistance. The Order of Malta Relief Organization is often described as a responsible community. Therefore, we share our knowledge with all citizens of Lithuania. The funds, collected for the trainings, are used to expand the Young School Paramedics program.
We have a special training certificate and you can also get a first aid certificate for your courses. We believe that knowing how to provide first aid helps to make our society safer.

Malteser civil protection activities depend on the current situation in the country. All activities and projects are carried out taking into account the most relevant problems or emergency situation in the country. Maltesers are currently working on the following activities:
Volunteering at Vilnius Airport – Maltese-coordinated volunteers help passengers to overcome various problems related to arrival in the Republic of Lithuania. Volunteers advise passengers on various issues: help to fill in all the necessary documents, ensure that passengers keep safe distance and wear masks.
Cooperation with the National Public Health Center under the Ministry of Health – Maltese volunteers help to compile passenger questionnaires into the electronic space and trace new cases of the corona virus in the call center.
Help for educational institutions – Prolonged quarantine poses learning challenges for children and young people. To compensate for the loss of learning, Maltesers are inviting volunteers to join the “Help me teach” initiative. Volunteers are invited to help students learn remotely or to help teachers organize the learning process more smoothly in schools and children’s day care centers throughout Lithuania.
Volunteering in care institutions and hospitals – in case of lack of additional hands in care institutions and hospitals, we coordinate volunteering activities, during which volunteers help the staff of medical institutions to ensure the care of patients.
Assistance during vaccination – together with the Lithuanian Red Cross and Caritas Lithuania, we joined forces to help municipalities in the vaccination process. Volunteers, coordinated by organizations, help by registering residents for a vaccination visit, informing them about the course of vaccinations. Volunteers also monitor flows at vaccination sites — helping people fill out the necessary paperwork, measuring temperature, and escorting them to the right office.
During a pandemic, Malteser care not only for their existing but also for newly emerging, volatile recipients. We also cooperate with other non-governmental organizations (eg: Food Bank, etc.). We help individuals in self-isolation due to COVID-19, or at risk by providing them food or household goods, medicines at personal expense, counseling and emotional assistance.
In addition, Maltesers take part in municipal and state-level exercises, in which they practice how to behave appropriately in certain situations, and undergo other necessary training, such as first aid courses.
