Notes from the Nonprofit

The Cuban Association of the Sovereign Order Malta was established in 1952. It was reorganized in Miami, Florida in 1990, where new activities were established for the poor and the elderly in cooperation with the local Catholic Church. Presently it has over 100 Knights, Dames and Chaplains, including three living in Cuba. In the Miami area it helped establish the San Juan Bosco medical clinic where its doctors currently continue to serve, and at San Juan Bosco parish established the Our Lady of Philermos Neighborhood Assistance Center, affectionately known as La Casa de Malta. The Cuban Association also conducts medical missions to the Dominican Republic and to other countries of the Caribbean and Central America. It works closely with the Catholic Church in Cuba since 1996, currently funding elderly support centers, living facilities for retired priests, and hospitals and other institutions. Through these facilities, the Association distributes approximately 500,000 meals/year.

What we aim to solve

The Order's mission is summed up in its motto Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum: defence of the faith and assistance to the poor and sick. Today the Order of Malta is mainly active in health and social care and humanitarian aid, operating in over 120 countries. Its 13,500 members are supported by 80,000 volunteers, with another 25,000 doctors, nurses and paramedics. The Order manages hospitals, health centres, out-patient units, institutes for the elderly and disabled, terminal patient centres and volunteer corps. Malteser International, the Order of Malta's special relief agency, is always in the front line in natural disasters and to alleviate the consequences of armed conflicts.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

As part of the Order of Malta, the Cuban Association goals are to further the Charism of the Order: defense of the Faith and assistance to the sick and poor. To accomplish these goals, we have established programs in our area of responsibility where we have members working in these geographical areas: the Little Havana sector of Miami; Cuban catholic parishes; the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the Sierra Nevada region of Colombia.

We have established specific assistance programs in these areas, explained in more detail in this document. - The Casa de Malta assistance center at San Juan Bosco Parish in Little Havana, Miami, Florida; - 61 senior assistance centers throughout Cuban catholic parishes, with the cooperation of the Cuban Catholic church, giving more than 700,000 meals every year; - Medical Missions to the Dominican Republic four times a year who give assistance to more than 3,000 children and adults every year, with the assistance of the Dominican chapter of the Order of Malta; - Project DUNI at Sierra Nevada de San Marta in Colombia, where we setup a medical dispensary and telemedicine link to assist the local Bunkwimake Indians with their health needs; - Assistance in Puerto Rico to the Sisters of Mary, with their hospitals and clinics, with our members of the local Delegation based in San Juan.

We fund our projects with donations from our members, both in cash and with their professional support (doctors); from supporters outside the Order with their donations, both individuals and corporations; and from other funds like the Fund for the Forgotten People in Rome, the DeBoer Foundation in Washington D.C., LAAD in Miami, TELVA Foundation in Spain, and others, all of which, with their contributions, help to make these programs a success.

We review these programs every year at our anual CHapter General, and monitor their development every month at the meetings of our Government Council, to measure their progress, and take corrective action when needed.

In each of our programs, we have been improving our results. The medical missions started once a year at the ILAC center in the Dominican Republic. Now we are holding four Medical Missions, giving relief and medical attention to more than 3,500 patients every year, with more than 230 doctors, nurses and other volunteers participating, in addition to the local volunteers from the Dominican Republic and the members of the Order of Malta Dominican Association that help with medical supplies and logistics. In Casa de Malta program in Miami, we have continued this food bank for more than nine years, steadily improving the services. Where we only provided food and language classes, we know added health screening services by registered nurses in collaboration with the San John Bosco Clinic, also in Miami. Recently, we started Saturday music classes for youngsters of the parish age 7-18 years old. Our elderly support centers in Cuba began with a single entity providing food for the elderly, where now, after more than 17 years, we are aiding more than 5,000 persons, with more than 500,000 meals a year, at more than 55 locations throughout the island parishes. With Project DUNI in Colombia, we began building the small medical facility at the Indian village in the Santa Marta mountains of Colombia. Presently we have installed internet and communication facilities, with the assistance of the Colombian Ministry of Communications, to be able to provide medical diagnostics and reviews on-line. We are also educating two students with scholarships provided by our Association donors in the United States and Europe.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
