In the Footsteps of Abbé Pierre…

Abbé Pierre was strongly committed to the struggle to house the most vulnerable. He actively participated in the fight against global hunger. He was heavily involved in the call to write off debt in the developing world and attended the 'assembly for the small people of the world', on the fringes of the G7 summit (1994).
