Depaul International manages the Famvin Homeless Alliance (FHA) for the Vincentian Family, a global Catholic movement rooted in the spirituality and example of St Vincent de Paul. FHA supports established and emerging homelessness initiatives across the globe. Our vision is a world where everyone has a place to call home and a stake in their community.

Give us the opportunity to change our story is the slogan of the 13 Houses project with street children in Ghana. Their story and all their plans to change it has drastically changed with the Covid 19 epidemic. In reaction to this, the 13 Houses Campaign has adapted since April. The aim is to not abandon people living in the streets, more vulnerable than ever.

Vincentian Family members who are running the 13 Houses projects in forgotten areas of the world, have decided to expand their services to the growing needs of homeless groups, and the Famvin Homeless Alliance is supporting them with your donations.

One month ago, we had identified 5 initiatives in Lebanon, Philippines, Peru, Rwanda, and Ukraine. Since then, this has tripled! Numbers will probably continue to grow as the pandemic gets more severe and develops in other countries.

You can be of great help to change the stories we are hearing about: hunger, unemployment, overcrowding in small shacks or refugee camps, and police abuse towards street dwellers...

Our Vincentian initiatives provide food, shelter, hygiene products, medicine, and protective material.

With 80 $ you can feed a family for a month in Guatemala.

With 70 $ you can shelter and feed one person in quarantine for a month in Tanzania.

With 50 $ you can feed a street child for a month in Ghana.

With 20 $ you can feed a family for a week in Ecuador, or a refugee for a month in Rwanda.

Here are some more stories you can do something about. Let us not forget any one of them.

Our minimum goal is 10.000 USD.

Donate and share our appeal!

All monies raised by FHA will be distributed to Vincentian Family organizations working with the poorest and the homeless globally. We will tell the stories of how funds have been spent and the difference it has made.
