As members of the Vincentian Family, this Conference brought us together to address the pressing issue of slum dwelling affecting over a billion lives globally. Recognizing that only through collective efforts, combining resources, and sharing expertise, can we overcome this challenge. 

13 Houses Exhibition

A journey with those experiencing homelessness

The photographic exhibition originates from the heart of a Vincentian initiative that serves homeless people worldwide: the 13 Houses Campaign.  These images are not just shots behind a camera; they offer us an opportunity to see beyond, to fully grasp the meaning of this journey. Bon voyage.


“Imagine waking up each morning in a crowded, makeshift dwelling with no assurance of a safe and secure environment. This is the daily reality for millions of slum dwellers worldwide.”
