HOME­LESS PROB­LEM

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

I am be­gin­ning to re­alise why peo­ple pre­fer to sleep at bus s stands and on the streets. Some of them are served break­fast as early as 5am, which con­sists ts of boiled­boi eggs, half-loaves of bread with but­ter, muffins and a hot cup of cof­fee or tea. S Some usu­ally have buf­fet lunch and din­ner which is pro­vided by some ‘Good Sa­mar­i­tans’ and re­li­gious groups. While speak­ing to some of them early yes­ter­day morn­ing I found out some pre­fer not to do any work be­cause they usu­ally beg for money that will pro­vide them with liquor, grog and even glue to get high on.

With food and drinks pro­vided these so-called street peo­ple pre­fer not to do any work. With such at­ti­tude the long-aged prob­lem of beg­gars and street kids will be an ever­last­ing prob­lem.
