I chanced upon a homeless jobless over the weekend and had conversations that leads him pointing to few other "familiar faces" that called changi as their home. As it turn out, there are over 10 people likes him.
He cited that it not that he's don't want to work but conditions has forced him to, he has long-overgrown hair and nails that turn potential employer away.
I would like to help them but I alone am not able, below are what I think could help these people and seeking help from you all. In all sincerity; of course.
It takes about $50 for one jobless and theres about 10 of them, hence i am aiming for $500. I have done the calculations below.
$10 for hair cut
$10 for ezLink - its cheaper for them to move about
$10 pocket money
Basic hygene ($10)
$1 bar of soap
$5 toothpaste and tooth brush
$1 nail clipper
Food for the day ($10)
$2 loaf of bread
$2 bread spread
$5 hot meal for the day
As you can see, a mere $50 could help this homeless clean for himself and travels to plave where he might get a job. Can we have this going?
