More than 320,000 people have no home in the U.K. 

Some 40,000 of these are single mothers.

Change Please

More and more people are being forced out on to the streets because of profound injustice and broken systems.

This could be easily addressed,

if enough people acted.

Homelessness is the symptom of a broken system and uncaring society.   

Compassion is key to evolution.

Since the homeless can't build shelters because of property and land laws, it is up to those with homes and resources to

solve this ridiculous problem.

"The day I was really hungry I got on my knees in the middle of the town centre and I cried out to God. I said please God, I am so hungry I’ve got three days now without food. Then I stood up, and I walked around the corner, looked on the floor and there was five pounds." 

“Sometimes you can go a couple of days, sometimes you can go a week. I think the longest I’ve ever been is about a week an a half.”

AT LEAST 800 PEOPLE HAVE DIED HOMELESS ON THE STREETS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM IN THE PAST 18 MONTHS

The oldest was 94 years old.

An Exhibition for Change

Presenting an extensive work studying homelessness over the course of 4 years, this exhibition aims to change how the world perceives and treats some of the most

amazing yet vulnerable people on Earth.

By explaining how and why extreme poverty still exists in the "developed world", and presenting solutions to this gross injustice, I hope to create lasting

change for humanity.

All profits from this exhibition support the work to create real, lasting solutions and profound social change

"It's the best picture of me I've ever seen"

OVER 50,000 PEOPLE ARE HOMELESS IN LONDON.

Meanwhile over 24,000 commercial properties and 72,000 homes in London have been empty for 6 months or more.

 

The usage of property and land as an investment vehicle for the wealthy has lead to a profound struggle for the lower income majority. Coupled with the fact that new urban developments overwhelmingly target high income and globally mobile buyers, this means that the lack of accommodation for low income individuals will continue; even while residential spaces remain empty.

 

This growing lack of suitable living space for hundreds of thousands of people is causing a devastating form of economic imprisonment; affecting every layer of society. We need to wake up and realise that

an investment in humanity is an investment in us all.

"You know every winter times how many innocent

homeless people die? Please help them.

That’s my kind request”.

 

- Brother Sanga,

 

Sanga was an amazing and beautiful human who came to the U.K seeking Assylum after being tortured in Sri Lanka's civil war. He was refused the right to work and forced out onto the streets of London, where he painted colourful art in Trafalgar Square to try and make other people happy.

Sanga remained homeless in London for 9 years, and died months after filming this message.

I was not in the country at the time, and returned to find my friend dying in hospital.

Why does this happen. Why do we leave people to suffer on the streets.

Some people tell me that is just the way the world is;

But I say this is just the world we were born into,

 We are able and meant to change it.

These wonderful people have so much to give.

"You’re in a situation you can’t control, with problems you

can’t solve, so you do what you can to survive."

"You’ve gotta wait for a certain time, to find a place that’s dry, and then there’s competition for it so you have to fight for it."

Change it

The system of today causes profound inequality which ultimately leads to poverty, dependance and homelessness.

 

By concentrating resources into the hands of a few people, it actively forces others into dependency upon state & corporate systems.

Misdirection through the media makes the majority ignorant of truth, passively living in acceptance of gross injustice while thinking

that this is a normal way of life. 

The unjust systems of the modern era create much unnecessary pain and suffering through purposeless struggle.

This is not normal now and has not been normal for most of human history. The world

as it stands is very much broken. 

There is absolutely no reason people should be left without shelter when we have abundant resources and ability to facilitate this basic right to human dignity. 

It is time we acted to change this.

In London alone many thousands of people are currently sleeping on the streets, in dirty alleyways, public parks and places no one sees. 

Homelessness is our collective responsibility, servants of love must face it together. 

The number of human beings forced to sleep on the streets has doubled in less than a decade.

They Need Us to Care More

Of all those people left out on the streets,

So many are kind hearted and needlessly suffering.

These wonderful people have so much to give.

I have lived beside many of them and speak from experience.

 

Over the years I have seen how the world system breaks their spirit.

I have been forced to watch so many suffer and even die from the streets.

Why.

Why do we pass by doing nothing?

 

Why do we allow this.
