Support for the homeless across London
Order of Malta volunteers in teams deliver packs to hostels and hotels
London, 12 May 2020
As the weeks roll on, the need to support the homeless is still high on the agenda. The Order’s Brompton Project is operating in shifts, with volunteers working 3 days a week, collecting and boxing up an average of 2000 items. The packs include clothing and basic essentials. They are then loaded up by five volunteer drivers who drive to four hotels (for 200 clients) and seven hostels (for 480 clients) each Friday and deliver them.
All activities are undertaken observing government guidelines for social distancing, plus wearing masks and gloves.
