An introductory three-minute film about the Global Fund for Forgotten People won the first prize at the FilmAt Festival 2022 in the category Fundraising, Non-profit and Corporate & Social Responsibility.
Established in 2012, the Global Fund for Forgotten People (https://www.forgottenpeople.org/) is an Order of Malta organisation that raises funds from private donors and charitable foundations, to support projects that benefit the most disadvantaged in society. The film (see link), which was produced in six languages, helps viewers understand the variety and importance of the worldwide works of the Order of Malta, and the role that the Global Fund for Forgotten People plays in supporting our mission to serve the Forgotten: the persecuted, the elderly, the homeless, abandoned and disabled children, refugees, people with diseases that most think have been cured long ago.
Niels Lorijn, Ambassador of the Sovereign Order of Malta to Poland attended the award ceremony at the Museum of Sports and Tourism in Warsaw. Upon receiving the award, Ambassador Lorijn said: “I am honoured to accept this award in the name of the Order of Malta and the Global Fund for Forgotten People. The film is a testament to our volunteers, medical staff and all those who work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of the victims of war, natural disasters, the refugees, the homeless, the elderly, the disabled and all those in need.”
