Some days I have to go hungry to feed my children

HERE is just one example of the kind of heart rending letters received each week by the St Vincent de Paul Society in Mallow (edited). Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to you for help in paying my electricity bill and also I would like fuel for the winter.

I live in a rented house that has no central heating, only an open fire. I have a family to support and some days I have to go hungry to feed my children.

I never got the back to school allowance and the school books were all changed this year.

The books cost €150 and clothes cost €150 also.

Thanking you.
