Here's a little extra information on St. Vincent de Paul...
The St. Vincent de Paul is the largest, voluntary, charitable organisation
It is a society that is working
for social justice and the creation
of a more just, caring nation. The aim of the St
Vincent de Paul Society is to tackle poverty in all
its forms through the provision of practical
assistance to those in need.
SVP has seen a huge increase in people calling
on us for help in regions like Dublin, Cork and
the Galway. In Dublin alone, SVP have recieved
almost a 100% increase in calls for assistance over
the last two years. Many of these calls are coming
from families with young children; in fact 65% of calls
this year have come from parents with young families
who requesting help to pay for food, heating, mortgage
payments or other basic necessities. (www.svp.ie)
