The Romanian Maltese Relief Service (SAMR) is a non-profit organization. We serve poor people and anyone in difficult socio-economic situations.

For 25 years, through our 17 subsidiaries and branches in the country, we are developing programs for the benefit of those in need – the elderly, the sick, people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. Almost 1000 volunteers are constantly involved to help them live with dignity and to alleviate or combat social exclusion. Our staff is almost 95% made up of volunteers. All the work we do aims to continue the 900-year-old tradition of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta – “Protecting the faith and helping those in need”.

Competence and Expertise Offered

With the help of our volunteers and employees we offer a wide variety of social services to thousands of people each year. We have been working with youth and volunteers since 1991. During this time, we have developed long-term socio-educational projects for them. Also, we have institutions for the elderly and the disabled. We also have many years of expertise in working with segregated, especially Roma, communities in facilitating their social inclusion through integrated approaches. And, right

Expertise sought

Currently we are looking for partners in the field of education for those who have dropped out early from school, especially in segregated communities. We are also interested in new approaches to address social exclusion brought about by poorly living and socio-economic conditions. Any experience exchange in the field of youth work and volunteering is also welcome. Last but not least, any expertise in the domain of fundraising and visibility increasing is also in the scope of expertise sought.
