According to the magazine "Street Lamps", the Croatian magazine about homeless people, there is a significant increase in the number of homeless people:
  • LONDON50% more families in temporary accommodation than 2010
  • ATHENS1 of 70 people are now homeless, most of them became homeless since 2011
  • COPENHAGEN75% more young homeless people since 2009
  • CROATIAless than 500 places in homeless shelters, the needs are many times greater
Eurostat (a part of the EU administration, with main responsibilities, are to provide statistical information) is not collecting any statistics on homeless people. It's scandalous.

The only light point is the data obtained from INSP (International Network of Street Papers):
  • FINLAND10% less homeless in the last 3 years
Winter is coming, December has the largest percentage of suicide for the whole year, and some homeless people are frozen if temperatures fall below zero. Please help a homeless person get back on their feet, now is the right time!
