The homeless people in Dublin’s hospitals are fed, watered and clothed by a volunteer group, and it’s all to raise money for children’s hospital.
In the past, children’s hospitals have provided meals to the poor, but the volunteers in this group are giving the poor something more.
They have taken the homeless children and given them a warm meal with bread, vegetables and butter, said Rosanna Doyle, from the St. Michael’s Hospital Children’s Food Bank.
The volunteers also have the children’s rooms cleaned, the mattresses put back on and the beds cleaned to make sure there are no dirty needles.
Doyle said the group is working with other homeless shelters and the city to ensure there is enough food for the children in the emergency rooms.
