Shocking images from the slums of the world affect all of us deeply. Danielle Quinn once wrote …..“Don't try to drive the homeless into places we find suitable. Help them survive in places they find suitable."
Those who have seen the desperation of homeless people after civil strife or natural disaster, know that it is not just immediate assistance that is required. It is also a far-sighted action plan necessary to get the survivors into productive communities once again. For people who have lost family members, their homes, their jobs and indeed all hope, it must provide motivation for them to move forward with their lives, where often there is none.
