Since December 21st, Médecins du Monde (Doctors of the World) has been distributing tents to homeless people in Paris.
Dr Françoise Jeanson, President of Médecins du Monde, writes, in her letter of December 22nd (my translation):
These tents are not a solution, they symbolize the absence of a solution.
By that date, ten homeless people had already died of the unusual cold this winter.
