Because everyone deserves protection, warmth and dignity.
Worldwide, millions of people are forced to sleep outside in the cold. That number is growing by the minute. Poverty, mental illness, unexpected loss of jobs, natural disasters, and wars are the top causes of homelessness around the world. On the most Eastern Greek Islands, over a million people have desperately been seeking shelter, fleeing from poverty and war. In the Netherlands alone, more than 30,000 people are pushed into homelessness. The number of tragic life occurrences is endless, forcing people into a life on the streets.
