The Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem is what it says in its title, a Nursing Military Order.
Today, Nursing has become charitable giving. The Grand Commandery devotes its giving to helping lepers in Africa and India. Unfortunately, lepers are among the poorest of the poor, the forgotten living on the outermost fringes of society.
The Military aspect is reflected in Armorial symbols which help define the many Jurisdictions of the Order and link them to the Order at the centre.
