St Vincent de Paul is yet another supposedly trusted not-for-profit charity organisation that was founded in 1833 run by the Catholic church to service the poor and assist those suffering from poverty. The Society currently operates in 153 countries and has more than 800,000 members.
The St Vincent de Paul Society was established in Australia in 1854 to assist the poor after the Victorian Gold Rush and then also set up the SVP orphanage in South Melbourne.
