Welcome to the website of Emirat Shriners

Shriners all over the world have a deep heart in mind to help children with orthopedic problems, burn injuries, cleft lip and other diseases. The children receive free treatment at all our Shriners Children’s® facilities in the United States, Canada and Mexico.


Our members are spread all over Europe. As European Shriners, we do not operate our own hospitals. Our mission and goals are to cover the travel expenses, accommodation and also the incidental costs for the accompanying of relatives during the childs are treated in one of our facilities overseas. Of course, all this is not free, but free of charge for the children and their relatives.


Of course, we need support for the costs. If you would like to make your contribution, we would be happy to receive a donation or a membership to Emirat Shrine Center e.V. According to German law, donation receipts can be issued through the registered association for tax.

Do not hesitate to contact us using one of the contact details provided.


Master Masons can become active members of the Emirat Temple and become actively loyal to our worldwide motto: "Fun and Fellowship".

In addition, we work very closely with the women's organization “Daughters of the Nile”, whose temple "Athalia" (Orlando) runs a club in Europe named “Selket”.


In 2023, my predecessor had chosen the motto “Share the Light”.

After all, this light should be transported further, always shining and perhaps even becoming much brighter.

That's why I have chosen the motto “Shine on” (in the variation SHrINE ON) for 2024. It is not only the title of one of my favorite pieces of music, but also the desire to carry the torch into the darkness for handicapped children.

Sincerely & Fraternally
