Project Depaul cares for homeless people in the capital and every night 250 of them can sleep in a clean and warm environment. However, besides clean linen and hygienic necessities Depaul desperately needed to establish an ambulance room. Depaul’s clients suffer from many health issues especially in winter months. These include frost bites or infections. The regular emergency rooms refuse to deal with homeless people and often, they are left to wander off and care for themselves. The equipment of the permanent ambulance from the grant of Foundation Granvia was a priority number one for Depaul.
