Did you receive your latest issue of Depaul Diaries?
Most of us take them for granted. But when you’re homeless, you don’t have that luxury.
Around 70% of the people who come through Depaul’s doors have painful wounds and infections to their feet and lower legs.
“It can get so bad that your feet turn black.
You can lose your toes…”
— Nurse Ruth, Depaul
Ruth says that every year, as the weather starts getting wetter, she starts to see lots of people with severe wounds and sores.
“I see lots of ‘trench foot’ this time of the year. Essentially your skin is rotting,” says Ruth. “Without Depaul, I’m not sure where they would go.”
As the nights grow colder and darker and wetter, will you bring profound comfort to someone who has no place in this world to call home?
