Humanitarians of the World Inc, (HOTWINC), did there Thanks Giving & Christmas Homeless Presentation, here in New York , to Homeless individuals living on the streets , sleeping on park benches, on subway trains, under card board boxes and if they are lucky they might find a bed in a homeless shelter.
Each bag contained, tee shirt, hat, 2 pairs of socks , water bottle, toothpaste with tooth brush, other hygiene products, and healthy snacks for them to enjoy, all this was packed in a tote bag which they can use over and over again.
A lot of them were scared on being on camera, since a lot of them are from south America living on the streets with no legal status, they were scared that if ISIS finds them that they will be deported back to their countries.
We had a couple of people who were brave to share their stories with us, on such person was Carlos, who has been living on the streets for the past seven years, he was working had one room he was sharing, he worked as a busboy in a restaurant in the city, one day his boss laid him off , and he went on to tell us he had no family or friends here to help him, the landlord told him to move, since he was not able to pay his rent, for his room.
So he left slept on a bench in a park, he had 2 plastic bags which had his clothes in and he met few other people who were also homeless , living on the street who he started being friends with, they taught him about the food pantries, shelters and how to survive the streets.
When asked why he did not stay in the shelter he went on to say that , he did go one time and while he was sleeping a man tried to rob him and rape him, so he ran out of the shelter, since that time he never went to any shelters because of the bad experience he had.
Since then he has been drinking Alcohol, taking Drugs and sniffing glue to get high, he told us he has given up in life, and does not see his life getting better.
The other person who spoke to was , Florencio, who actually lost his whole left arm through an accident on the subway station, he told us he was working before as an busboy in a restaurant in Queens, after he was taken to the hospital , he had to have his arm amputated ,because it got infected .
After he left the hospital, he told us he had nowhere to go, he lost his room he was renting and he was not able to get his things back the landlord had thrown them away.
Now florencio is living on the streets, eating in pantries, throughout New York City, gets clothing from different charities, from time to time he stays in a shelter, when it’s brutally cold in the winter.
