Homeless Problem Around The World
Every given night in the USA, around 640,000 people without shelter, 13% of them served in the US Military. Isn't it a little strange that soldiers who fought in difficult battles will sleep in the streets?
In 2009 at the United States there were 154,000 homeless, some of whom served in South Vietnam. There are 3.5 million homeless Americans each year. More than a million children, and every night over 300,000 children without shelter.
About 105,000 homeless people in Australia. 44% are women, 12% are children under the age of 12 years
In 2013, 112,070 people declared themselves homeless in England. This is a 26% increase in four years.
The number of people sleeping on the street in London increased by 75% to 6,437 in 2013
More than 250,000 homeless people in England
It is estimated that more than 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness per year, with more than 35,000 Canadians homeless each night.
Between 13,000 and 33,000 Canadians are chronically homeless.
There are many misconceptions often associated with the homeless.
So how people become Homeless?
By tragic events in life, such as the loss of loved ones, loss of employment, domestic violence, divorce and family disputes. Other deficiencies such as depression, untreated mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder and physical disabilities are also responsible for a large proportion of the homeless. And many other factors push people to live on the street. Recognizing this can help end the homeless.
A broken car, lack of car insurance, or even free tickets may be enough to make someone homeless
Divorce costs and the accompanying reduction in the family's total income may cause one or more families to become homeless
A serious illness or accident disabling may drain their money and push them into the street.
Today, the rapid, unexpected loss of jobs and foreclosures resulting in a major dislocation among families has dramatically added to the number of homeless people above their heads
We at Top gifts aim to bring awareness to the plight of the homeless.
While many homeless people may be addicted or mentally ill, there is still a significant population of homeless that is not suitable within this stereotype. Many people are forced to leave their homes after losing a job, receiving expensive medical care, refusing to stay in an abusive or toxic environment, or being pushed into the streets by family or friends who can not care for them anymore. These are very extensive examples, and not every story of a homeless person will be the same and not every homeless person is a drug addict.
