(Vatican Radio) The Italian association Solidarity Medicine has thanked Pope Francis for the new facility in the colonnade of St. Peter’s Square which provides medical care to people who are homeless and in need.

The director of the association, Lucia Ercoli said "we are grateful to Pope Francis for wanting to, once again, give a concrete sign of mercy in St. Peter's Square to the homeless or distressed. Our doctors along with those of FAS and the Policlinico Tor Vergata have accepted with great passion this new challenge that ideally combines the work done in recent years in the suburbs with the heart of Christianity. "

The director said, “there still much work to be done especially in the suburbs of our city, but I think this new clinic in St Peter’s is a sign of great hope ".
