Naš nacionalni Dan: Humanitarna diplomatija i kultura.

23/06/2016

Beograd, 22. juni
Druge godine zaredom, praznik Svetog Jovana Krstitelja, Sveca Suverenog Malteškog Reda, obeležen je u kontekstu humanitarne diplomatije i kulture.

Iako je sasvim jasno da je naša misija u korist onima kojima je najpotrebnija u svetu, a posebno u 120 zemalja u kojima smo prisutni, ponekad se zaboravlja na to da naša istorija od skoro 1000 godina obuhvata i kulturu. I tako, po drugi put zaredom, u živopisnom ambijentu Narodnog pozorišta u Beogradu, odigrala se slavna Opera Đuzepea Verdija „Rigoletto“, sa gostujućim svetskim operskim zvezdama, baritonom Alberto Gazale i sopranom Elena Mosuc.

U Narodnom pozorištu, u prisustvu od 550 ljudi i verskih, diplomatskih i kulturnih vlasti, Ambasador Alberto di Luka je preneo pozdrave Velikog Majstora Suverenog Malteškog Reda, Fra ‘Matthew Festing-a, ističući odlične odnose između Malteškog Reda i Srbije i uspešnog razvoja bilateralne saradnje.

Između ostalog, Ambasador je istakao veliku posvećenost Ambasade Reda u Srbiji za realizaciju drugog izdanja akcije „Make a WISH to the Sovereign Order of Malta“, koja je ove godine posvećena deci ometene u razvoju iz ustanove Sremčica i devojkama iz doma za decu i mlade ometene u razvoju manastira srpske pravoslavne crkve Svete Petke Izvorske.

Brojna su pisma sa željama koja su pristigla u Ambasadu iz ovih institucija i, za razliku od prošle godine, neće se čekati zvanična svečana isporuka želja, već će se želje deliti tokom cele godine, u zavisnosti od prikupljenih sredstava. Tako smo omogućili isporuku dugo očekivanu medicinsku opremu kao što su EKG aparat i aparati za merenje šećera Izvoru. Veliku količinu odeće i mašine za pranje i sušenja veša za ustanovu Sremčica.

Za veliki uspeh ovog prvog dela akcije „Make a WISH 2016“ zaslužni su velikodušni donatori koji su želeli da podrže našu akciju. Kao što su „Globalni fond za zaboravljen ljude“ Malteškog Reda; Ministarstvo spoljnih poslova Tajvana; i italijanska kompanija „Original Marines“ kojima je Ambasador želeo javno da se zahvali.

U narednim mesecima isporučićemo mini-bus od 20 mesta ustanovi Sremčica; industrijske mašine za pranje i sušenje veša Izvoru; i auto-ambulantno vozilo Sestrama manastira Svete Petke Izvorske koje rukovode centrom za decu i sa puno ljubavi i odanosti brinu o svojim devojkama.

Bariton Alberto Gazale i sopran Elena Mosuc očarali su publiku – koja je aplaudirala nekoliko minuta nakon završetka- sa njihovim fantastičnim izvođenjem opere „Rigoletto“ Đuzepea Verdija, pod dirigentskom palicom maestra Dejana Savića.

Nakon završetka Opere, u salonu Narodnog Pozorišta, gosti su nazdravili u ime prijateljstva između Srbije i Malteškog Reda i mnogobrojnih uspešnih inicijativa koje je Ambasada u Beogradu organizovala u proteklih godinu dana: „Topli obrok za hladne zimske dane“; podrška izbeglicama – u saradnji sa nemačkim Maltezerom – koji su prošli kroz Srbiju posebno na početku godine, a pružali smo našu pomoć kako u Vranju tako i na samoj granici sa Mađarskom; i naravno akcija „Make a WISH to the Sovereign Order of Malta“ koja je privukla veliko interesovanje u zemlji na ličnom nivou, kao i u medijima.
Među prisutnima bilo je puno poslanika, uključujući i potpredsednika parlamenta, Prof. Dr. Vladimira Marinkovića i bivšeg predsednika Grupe prijateljstva između Srbije i Malteškog Reda, i Jadranka Jovanović, poznata operska pevačica.

Za drugu godinu zaredom, Ministarstvo Spoljnih poslova Tajvana  je želelo da podrži akciju “Make a WISH”. Na fotografiji, specijalno došao iz Budimpešte, Ambasador Wen-lung Tao.

Everyone is already familiar with the humanitarian and social commitment which has been the mission of the Order of Malta for over 900 years, today present in 120 countries around the world. Centuries go by, lives of people and countries profoundly change, but the reasons of our mission - Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum - Protection of Faith and service to the poor - at the service of humanity, of its rights and dignity of life, remains unchanged, timelessly and incessantly. I wish to recall and underline that the value and meaning of our global commitment was recognized by the contribution of ideas and proposals that our Order made, and acknowledged by all, at the World Humanitarian Summit of the United Nations, held in Istanbul last May. I warmly thank the Serbian national and local institutions for their cooperation which characterizes our excellent bilateral relations, always inspired by our common values that unite us.

Most of the requests for medical equipment, industrial laundry and drier machines for Izvor, large quantities of clothing and laundry and drier machines for Sremcica, have already been delivered. We are now working on getting a 20 seat bus for Sremcica and an ambulance for Izvor. Thanks to all of the donors, to you for being here and long live to the friendship between the Republic of Serbia and the Sovereign Order of Malta! Thank you all! Enjoy the performance!
