Humanitarians of the World Inc , did their most largest Humanitarian Needy and Homeless Tour of East Coast -2018. We started off From Florida Orlando , from there we went to Daytona Beach Florida, where we presented close to 20 families who were homeless and living on the beach and Daytona Beach area, a lot of them coming throughout the USA.
The next step of the tour was St Augustine Florida , where we presented 5 Single individuals with our Tote bags filled with basic necessities, 2 of the homeless people were from St Augustine, the other 3 were from out of state looking for jobs but ended up being homeless and started living on the streets.
Following St Augustine, our next step of the tour was in Jacksonville Florida, here were presented close to 30 people ,we have to say Jacksonville Florida, had so many people who were homeless living on the Streets, it was probably the largest population of homeless people on our East coast tour.
In Jacksonville Florida, a lot of people who were homeless, were from Jacksonville, with about 10% of them out of state. We Spoke with many of them asking them how they became homeless, a lot of them said, there rent got so expensive and were evicted by their landlords and had no choice but to end up being homeless and living on the streets.
Some had mental issues, others had no jobs to support their self’s ,one women told us after being homeless she became an prostitute, to help her make an income for herself.
After Jacksonville Florida, we stopped in Maryland and Washington DC, in Maryland we saw many people on the streets walking bare feet, a good amount of them having mental issues, some had Drug and Alcoholic Problems, as we came to Washington DC, We saw mostly people who were from Washington DC, and were homeless living on the streets. One person told us he was working a full time security job and was still not making enough money to rent one room for his self, he told us he was also eating at homeless shelters and soup kitchens, others turned to panhandling, begging for money and food , to survive.
After Maryland and Washington DC , we made a stop at Delaware, we presented to 10 Homeless individuals, few of the homeless people told us in the daytime they panhandled and pointed out to us in the night time they will sleep in abandoned buildings, with no light or heat, once asked how do they stay warm in the cold ,they replied they would burn an small fire, outside to keep their selves warm.
One person told us he came from Florida to Delaware to find an job, when he got there he found out that there was no job, he had no money to return back to Florida, he was hustling to raise money by panhandling so he can buy a one way bus ticket to go back to Florida.
Right after Delaware we headed to Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, as we approached Central Philadelphia, we saw many homeless people in the city, in parks and bus shelters. A lot of them coming from Pennsylvania and Philadelphia. So many had Drinking Problems, Drug issues, mental issues and women selling themselves at night.
One Teenage boy told us his stepfather raped him, while his mother was at work and he ran away from home, and ended up living on the street ,and he went on to say up to this date he has nightmares about his situation, when we asked him, if he told the police, he said if he did his stepfather told him that he will find him and kill him after he gets out of Jail, so he got scared and ended up moving away from his family members, he said he is safer on the streets then living with his family members.
I have to thank this individual, when I asked him about the Rocky Statue, he told me exactly how to get there, which I did go and took a pic with Rocky ( Sylvester Stallone).
From Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, we went to our last destination Newark New Jersey, here we were directed to an homeless shelter, on our Way to the shelter, we could not help seeing on each corner many drug dealers getting in and out of the cars, and selling drugs.
It was so sad that this was happening, and we met an older veteran who served in war, lost his both legs and was in a wheel chair , he was pushed by a friend he made in an shelter, who also is homeless, the veteran went on to say, he lost his benefits, his wife died and had 1 son ,who had a job and was making a good living, but did not want to help him ,told him to get support from VA, and Government Agencies.
Well I have to say ,I have been doing this all over the World, from age 8 Now Fifty Years old for approximately 42 years , the old veteran is the 1 millionth person we have touched through donations, referrals and Counseling .We are very honored that we have accomplished this milestone as an Humanitarian.
I am ready to help many more people who need our help ,I n this world, it’s the greatest feeling on the earth helping people who need help.
