Emmaus Bristol braved the wind and rain to attend College Green on 5 February and raise awareness of Homelessness in Bristol. We joined the Creative Youth group to give out blankets and hot soup to homeless people. Sleeping bags and blankets were also distributed to help keep out the cold.
One of the most important parts of the Emmaus ethos is solidarity. This means working to help someone less fortunate than yourself.
This can be very valuable for Emmaus companions as it is often key to helping to rebuild self-esteem, proving that everyone has the capacity to make a difference to the lives of others.
