Pope Gives Rome Homeless the Christmas Gift of a New Clinic in the Vatican

Pope Francis has commissioned a new clinic in St Peters Square which offers free medical help in his latest move to help Rome's destitute. The Rome Catholic charity Caritas estimated last year that there are more than 16,000 homeless in Rome and their number congregating near the Vatican has grown in recent years, especially at night when they cluster under arcades to sleep.
