Depaul Slovensko is a non-profit organisation established in 2006 to care for the homeless. It is part of the wider Depaul international family which has branches in the UK, Ireland, Ukraine and USA. The Centre’s Director, Jozef Kákoš, greeted the Ambassador and took him on a tour of the facility which can accommodate up to 300 men and women. The dedicated staff at Depaul Slovensko do amazing work for the homeless and most vulnerable in society, providing accommodation for the night, hot meals and basic medical care. They also work to help their clients reintegrate into society. The dedication and commitment on display was both inspiring and humbling. The Embassy of Ireland has a longstanding relationship with Depaul, one which we are committed to maintaining. The Ambassador donated some posters of Ireland to the Director who will use them to decorate an “Irish room” at the shelter.
