Caring for homeless boys and animals

Father Peter McVerry has been working with Dublin’s young homeless boys for more than 30 years and he accommodates them at a private shelter that is in dire need of support.

Two teams from Aspen Trading (Ireland) engaged in the campaign – one with the Peter McVerry Trust shelter and another at the Ash Animal Rescue. Confidentiality at the shelter prevented the team from taking photos, but that didn’t hinder them from reaching out to the needy homeless boys. Gardens were tended to and a room was painted while at Ash the animal enclosures were cleared out and the dogs were taken for a walk.
