Vatican opens medical clinic for the homeless

https://www.ncronline.org/news/quick-reads/vatican-opens-medical-clinic-homeless?fbclid=IwAR20BN1AJqc5o1w72IY2GwO08Ehn6ccmjGpP1Zsx9zl8fd-YNkhkgTwQKQ0

"The new clinic is next to the bathrooms and showers opened for the homeless in 2015; a year later, with the help of volunteers, services were expanded to include barbers and doctors once a week.

The clinic will be open Monday, Thursday and Saturday, said the announcement Dec. 22 from the office of Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner. Monday mornings, the statement said, podiatrists will be on duty to provide medical attention to patients with foot problems, something very common among the homeless.

On Wednesdays when Pope Francis holds his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square and whenever there are large events in the square, the clinic will serve as a first-aid station, the announcement said."

3. Wait, isn't there a great wall around the vatican?

Wonder whose job it is to let the homeless in and then run them out?
