Our current projects

EMMS International

Grants to medical electives

A representative writes:

‘Our programme to award bursaries to students of healthcare professions goes from strength to strength, with 61 young people supported as they serve in mission hospitals across the globe since the Order of St Lazarus partnered with EMMS International.

We are hugely grateful for all of the support and encouragement given by the Order of St Lazarus and its Charitable Trust. You have enabled us to :

  • Renew and expand the elective scheme,
  • Support 61 students, to date, on overseas electives,
  • Fund a Symposium in 2016 and plan for another Symposium later this year.

It is a pleasure to partner with an organisation that shares our values and vision, and wishes to make such a positive impact on students’ professional development and, ultimately, global health. Thank you!’
