In this generation the number of homeless people has grown like never before. If we talk about homeless people the first thing that comes up into our mind is the elder people who don’t have a roof above their heads. The reason why they don’t have a house to live mostly comes to fact that they can’t afford the bills that must be paid every month. In Holland it may be only the elder one’s but if we look further and in other countries there are not only elder people also small children who lost their parents.
They don’t have somewhere to stay they are all day on the street they don’t have any clothes on or food to eat. The struggles that they are going through each day to get something to eat or to get somewhere to spend the night is really hard for them. Even small children are part being homeless for example in poor countries the adults mostly don’t have a choice then rather to take their children to be on the streets with them.
“The struggles that they are going through each day to get something to eat …”
The big part of homeless people are mostly the men if you heard that there women out there homeless it’s hard for you to believe it. If you see homeless women mostly it causes by the fact that women are victims of physical and sexual abuse whereby they can’t take it anymore and then they decide to leave the house and start to live on the streets.
If we look outside Holland we can see that children who are under the 18 the homeless children are rising up as well as the adults, image yourself being under the 18 and living a life on the streets with no parents no one who can take care of you and you must find a way to survive each day on your own. Being homeless is really painful what if a homeless person gets seriously sick because not being able eat well wearing enough clothes walking outside in bad weather all day and at end of the day the person gets sick but is not able to go to the hospital because of money. As children of Christ we must come together and help the needy out there, when the homeless people they get these thoughts that their lives has come to an end we must let them know that at that very moment there is a bright light shining in front of them and that there struggles has come to an end.
