The Grand Commandery donated €10,000 to a leper colony in Kazakhstan, to enable badly-needed refurbishment of the bathrooms and to buy new beds. This project was overseen after by a member of the Grand Commandery, Confr Jarred Guthrie, who was working in Kazakhstan at the time.

Dr Saitaliev, the Medical Director of the colony, who is a Moslem, wrote: 

"Please God bless the good people who are saints of Lazarus for their help in improving the lives of the sick and unfortunate people here.  I want to thank them, on behalf of those who cannot, for finding kindness.  The changes being made here are noticed in the eyes and smiles of our patients.  Their smiles are for the saints."
