The Society of St Vincent de Paul was formed in Paris in 1833 by Frederick Ozanam, a student at the University of Paris. The society grew rapidly, but the friends soon realised that actions speak louder than words and began to distribute firewood to the poor in winter, and later food. Visiting the poor in their homes was an essential part of the work of the conference. SSVP IS A REGISTERED PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANISATION - NPO 003/193 - DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
