In the service of humanity

St John Organisations promote physical, mental and spiritual health and resilience in more than 35 countries. We deliver our activities through local St John Ambulance organisations and the St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital in Jerusalem.

First aid is at the core of what we do; each Year, St John organisations train more than 2 million people in first aid and other healthcare activities. Worldwide, we treat over 1.2 million and reach more than 2.5 million beneficiaries with our services.
