St John Rescue Corp

Providing civil defence via volunteers who are fully trained in rescue services, including assistance to the general public in rescue operations such as fire-fighting, high angle rescue, urban search & rescue, water rescue and medical support. The Melita Foundation is supporting St John Rescue Corps in the renovation and restoration of the 1880 Fort Madlena.

The Melita Foundation is supporting St John Rescue Corps in the renovation and restoration of a currently dilapidated room which forms part of the 1880 Fort Madlena and part of the British-built Victoria lines. The fort serves as the headquarters for the Corps and is the main location for all of the Corps’ training. The space is being restored to make it safe and more adequate to carry out major activities such as emergency response and health and safety training. This will aid in the preparedness of The Corps members to respond to national emergencies, it will maximise the space’s potential use thus providing a better ambience for training purposes, protect a historic and cultural space, and ultimately benefit society at large.

Making a difference together

Since starting in 2020, The Melita Foundation has backed many projects run by different groups and backgrounds. From local STEM skills for school kids in the Three Cities to global stuff like planting trees, ESG awareness, teaching maritime law and conservation and ensuring our heritage is well taken care of.
