Austria, July 2020
Supporting homeless people is important to the volunteers of the Know Thyself as Soul Center – Vienna. Therefore in July 2020 we donated hygiene bags to Vinzi-Port in Vienna.
Vinzi-Port, www.vinzi.at/vinziport-wien/ offers overnight accommodation, shower facilities and dinner for homeless and EU male citizens in need. The facility is run by volunteers and operates solely from donations.
When we learned from the organizer of Vinzi-Port that they needed hygiene products, we purchased 30 pieces of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving foam, and one-time use razors. The next day we packed them into 30 paper bags.
Upon the reopening of the Vinzi-Port house after renovation, we gave the prepared hygiene bags to the men currently accommodated at the house. They were very appreciative.
