Work 009

2006 055 Work 009“They just don’t want to work.” I still hear it said about homeless by many, in Europe, in South America, in Asia. In São Paulo you can see many homeless people on the street, collecting trash and pulling their carts through the town and traffic. When we went with them through the city we noticed how many people are working this way and help clean the city.

Mobile Homeless Homes

1 300x213 Mobile Homeless Homes The Paul Elkins Shelter is Almost Too Cozy Looking
No one wants to be homeless; it is a choice that does not come easily to most. But if you are going to be homeless, the Paul Elkins shelter ensures that you don’t have to be shelter-less.2 300x225 Mobile Homeless Homes
Sure, it is 225lbs, but it is on wheels and features a sleeping area, kitchen, makeshift bathroom and can go where you go. Granted, it is not that big, but I don’t think that matters when the Paul Elkins shelter will protect you from a downpour.

Can you picture yourself being homeless and living in a tent city?

sandiegotentcitycommeroverpass 300x124 Can you picture yourself being homeless and living in a tent city?That’s a frightening thought, but it is a looming possibility for more and more San Diegans as the economy gets worse for ordinary people.
Ocean Beach has a large homeless population. We see these people, chat with them and help them out with a buck here and there. But all the handouts and good will in the world don’t add up to enough money to pay rent. As rising rent is squeezing more and more ordinary people out of their homes (and allowing landlords to live ever-more luxurious lifestyles), the number of homeless people is increasing.

The Bum Life

1 300x167 The Bum LifeA documentary & book unveiling the truth of our nation’s homeless population. 23 cities, 23 homeless people and 1 man’s journey.

As young children, we are taught that homeless people are the lowest of the low, the trash of society and what we aim NOT to be. But it seems that the general population is fascinated by them, we can never look away, instead we stare in disbelief and shock that they could live in such conditions, out on the streets, with nothing to their name.

China: Homeless children found dead in rubbish bin

191 300x180 China: Homeless children found dead in rubbish bin By Oliver Campbell
24 November 2012
The dead bodies of five children, reportedly aged between 9 and 13, were found in a rubbish bin in the town of Bijie, in China’s south-western province of Guizhou on November 6.
The incident, which has highlighted the glaring inequalities of Chinese society, has become a focal point of widespread anger over endemic poverty, and the imperviousness of the sclerotic Chinese regime to the social needs of the masses.

Lost in the city

2006 1251 Lost in the city

Photography by Martijn Crowe www.thefaketory.org

They seem lost in the city, so many people living out on the streets in São Paulo, sitting walking, sleeping eating, in parks, in doorways, on banks, under the viaducts and simply in the middle of the sidewalks.
