Thursday, 23rd September 2021
8.00pm – 9.00pm
If you wonder, “Are there homeless people in Singapore?” you might say no. The situation in Singapore could be rare, but it is not as uncommon as you might think. According to a nationwide study done by the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in 2019 there are about 921 to 1,050 homeless people in Singapore.
So what can we do to help?
Hear from HeartBeats’ conversation with Solve n+1, a social enterprise that helps to provide a safe haven for Singaporeans who do not have a roof over their heads.
Via the Open Home Network initiative, the enterprise seeks out host families to open up their homes to people in need.
