What is Homeless?
The global spread of homelessness is a significant concern, with estimates suggesting that there are over 150 million homeless individuals worldwide. The problem is particularly acute in developing countries, where economic hardship and political instability can exacerbate the issue. However, even in developed countries, homelessness remains a persistent problem, with many individuals and families struggling to make ends meet and find affordable housing. individuals or a family who have not enough income to complete the one of the basic need i.e. home it may called home less.

Un affordable homes & Rent
The absence of affordable housing is another major cause. some people are unable to pay rent due to unaffordability. some homeless people despite having a job, do not earn enough to be able to cover their rent, sometimes as a result of an increase in local housing costs.
What UN Thinks about homeless –
One of the major issues facing the UN in addressing homeless issue is the lack of affordable housing. which we already discussed above. In many parts of the world, the cost of housing has risen significantly, making it difficult for low-income individuals and families to find stable, affordable housing. The UN has called for increased investment in affordable housing and the development of policies that can help to address this issue.
Another major issue facing the UN in addressing homelessness is the lack of access to basic services such as healthcare, education, and job training. Many homeless individuals struggle to access these services, which can make it difficult for them to escape homelessness and regain stability in their lives. The UN has called for increased investment in these services, as well as efforts to address the root causes of homelessness, such as poverty and inequality.
Finally, the UN has also recognized the need to address the issue of homelessness in a holistic and comprehensive manner, taking into account the many different factors that can contribute to homelessness, including mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence. The UN has called for increased investment in supportive services that can help homeless individuals address these underlying issues and regain stability in their lives.

What We should do ?
As a human being we found people who sleep on streets without any prevention from mosquitos and other bugs. lets help them with small steps.

- changes and create new ideas for these people. its means an USA citizen has hard dollar to fight any currencies. you must donate at least enough to your nearest NGO for people.
- you can donate cloth, fresh and clean water can and even donate happiness through your moral duty towards them.
- if you haven’t money or other bugs ti help them but still you want to help them ? don’t worry you can give them mentally courage, motivation through your words.
In short money not always plays hard roll in it. but your few sympathy words can made huge positive waves for them.
