Homeless has a name

On new year's eve, people had the choice between spending that night out or staying at home with family and friends. But there are people who don't have that choice because they're already leaving out. They're homeless.

They didn't choose to live in the street. Circumstances made them live that way. Who wants to spend this live in a carton box on the street?
Even every day is a struggle for a homeless person, people passes by them every day and don't care about them, like they're invisible. And even when they ask for money, those people think that the homeless will buy drugs. They also think a homeless is tramp and he deserves it.

An estimated 100 million people are homeless worldwide (Source: United Nations Commission on Human Rights, 2005)

Besides the weather and the hunger, homeless people are trying to stay safe. Sometimes, they’re beated and even raped (particularly for women) or killed. I remember that I saw a documentary about a homeless man who was on the marines. He was wearing he’s military clothes and sad that he served in Iraq but and I guess his country didn’t serve him back by giving him a warm place called home.

Every homeless has a story. Invisible.tv tries to make the invisible visible, to share those stories and let the world notice those poor people I hope these people.

Invisible people is dedicated to capturing real stories by real people bringing visibility to the issues of homelessness. The stories are told by real people in their own very real words. They're raw, uncensored and unedited.

Please always remember, the homeless people you’ll ignore today were much like you not so long ago. So have some mercy who knows.
