The Work of the St Vincent de Paul Society in Sudan:

The St Vincent de Paul Society feeds over 9,000 babies and young children per day in Sudan.  For most of these infants this is the only food they have to eat.  The 3 million or so meals the Society provides each year make the difference between children living for another day, or parents having to bury their babies.  For further information on how you can help, please contact 01923-442298, or westminster@svp.org.uk.
