Why support homeless?
Based on national reports, it's estimated that no less than 150 million people, or about 2 percent of the world's population, are homeless. However, about 1.6 billion, more than 20 percent of the world's population, may lack adequate housing. [Ref: https://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/cities-grow-so-do-numbers-homeless]
Victorian government states, "Homelessness rates in our municipality have soared over the past ten years. In the 2016 Australian Census, 1728 people were recorded as homeless. This nearly doubled in just five years, up from 923 in the 2011.There has also been a sharp increase in the number of people sleeping rough in our city. We know from our StreetCount 2018 data that almost 300 people were sleeping on the streets in City of Melbourne on any given night. Due to the economic effects of COVID-19, unemployment is increasing in Australia. An enormous number of people in Melbourne and Victoria are at risk of homelessness, now and in the months and years to come."

A study conducted by the Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL) has revealed that the number of homeless people in Kuala Lumpur stands at 1,500-2,000 as of February 2016. These figures show a threefold increase of homeless people since 2014, where only 600 homeless people were recorded. Based on the figures obtained, the rate of homelessness is increasing by the year. The fundamental reason for this possibly being due to the stagnating economic situation in the last few years.
