The Duchess of Norfolk opening the new wing of Depaul Slovakia’s Nightshelter in Bratislava

The Duchess of Norfolk said: “I am writing this message to each and every one of you to send you my heartfelt gratitude and admiration for your outstanding work in these extraordinary and precarious times.

I know how hard and potentially dangerous your work is and that each day you are risking your lives in your dedication and tireless efforts to help the poorest and most vulnerable in our society.

I send my love, thoughts and prayers to you all. As Patron, I am so proud and humbled to be associated with the exceptional work of Depaul International, and the St Vincentian family, and never more so than now. May God bless and protect you all.
