The Order of Malta Ambulance Corps is operated entirely by volunteers with the support of a small administration staff at head office. The Derry unit raises funds locally and is self-financing.
Ambulance and first aid services are provided at numerous sporting events and to other charitable bodies. The Derry Unit also provides a care team which assists the Derry Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes. The Ambulance Crops also forms part of the integrated emergency medical services – EMS - at major public events.
