The Order has supported the Polish Orphans' Charity for many years, which has collected and distributed over $1.5 million to make the lives of orphans in Eastern Europe better through scholarships, playgrounds and orphanage programs.

Grand Master HE The Chevalier Stephen Lautens GCJ presented Dr. Richarda Russ, founder and President of the Polish Orphans Charity, with our Order's Benefactors Medal at the 2016 Ball Pologne for her tireless work for this worthy cause.

Thank you to Michael Prof Photography for the photographs.
