Sometimes when we walk down the street, we would see homeless people on the streets. They come across many difficulties such as getting water, food, clothes, etc. They are IN NEED of these items. During the pandemic, it has been getting worse and worse, and we hope to lend them a helping hand.
So we have decided to help the homeless by gathering food and other materials for them. We contacted a lot of organizations, and although we encountered many difficulties, we didn’t give up. Instead, we kept finding more organizations until we found one that agreed to help. We even interviewed a person who was previously homeless, he told us that they needed food the most, and that they showered in public facilities. We thought that it was unhygienic because there was a possibility of getting infected by Covid-19 or other diseases.
At last, we’ve decided to help the homeless, by raising money so we could buy all kinds of materials for them.
Our target group is the homeless. Their lives are very desolate and pitiful. In addition to this sudden pandemic, it has made it even worse. Therefore we hope to help them live a better and normal life.

- 一開始我們只是想了主題 ， 沒有具體行動。At first, we just thought about the main idea, but there was no specific action.
- 我們去找不同機構贊助我們/幫助我們，雖然有大部分都沒有回覆我們，但我們沒有放棄，最終有機構回覆我們。We went to find different organizations to sponsor us/help us. Although most of them did not reply to us, we did not give up, and eventually some organizations replied to us.
- 我們決定先找物資，後找機構，如果還是找不到的話我們便會自己出外送給無家者們。We decided to search for the resources first then the organisations, if we still can’t find them then we will go out by ourself and give the homeless.

We have encountered many challenges, most of which are due to the impact of the pandemic. The activities originally scheduled have been cancelled one by one, because the pandemic makes it impossible for us to visit them (homeless people). When we sent information to different organizations, most of them ignored it or even deleted it directly, and didn’t reply. Therefore, we are very grateful for the organizations that helped us, which provided things for the homeless and help us distribute the materials.
