Homeless People

Homelessness is defined as living in housing that is below the minimum standard or lacks secure tenure. 

People can be categorised as homeless if they are: living on the streets (primary homelessness); moving between temporary shelters, including houses of friends, family and emergency accommodation (secondary homelessness).

Living in private boarding houses without a private bathroom or security of tenure (tertiary homelessness).

If you see a homeless on the street and go up to them say hi to them or say if they wanted something and buy some food for them.

Just be kind to homeless people they don’t have any people to talked to at all.

 Homelessness is a large problem across all of the Philippines with one-fourth of the the overall population living in poverty.

The Philippines as a whole struggles with the homeless epidemic with a total of about 1.2 million children who are living on the streets without a home (When In Manila).
