Pope Francis donates an ambulance to homeless and the poor
Pope Francis donated an ambulance for the emergency care of homeless and poor of Rome. It has been managed by the Papal Charities and it will serve the poorest ones of the Italian capital.
On the Pentecost Sunday, Pope Francis blessed the new ambulance donated to the Papal Charities which will have the duty to serve homeless and the poorest ones in Rome. “The ones who are invisible to the institutions”, as the Papal Charities spokesperson defined them.
The ambulance belongs to the Vatican’s fleet and has SCV (Vatican) license plates, according to a statement from the Holy See Press Office. It will be used exclusively to assist the homeless and the poorest people of Rome.
The donation includes a mobile clinic which will serve other initiatives of Pope Francis, as well as the Mother of Mercy Clinic, set up in the Colonnade of St. Peter’s Square. The clinic offers first-aid care to homeless people in the area and they will use that ambulance for the transportation fo the poorest patients.
Another great action by Pope Francis who already has done so much for charity operations and in the poorest ones’ assistance. Donating this ambulance, homeless will not be among the forgotten ones again.
