The poverty, as social exclusion, as homelessness in Europa, despite national differences, it's an European structural problem of society. 

Number of people living below the poverty line and in social exclusion in the Union is unacceptable...

For this reason must be placed at the centre of an urgent call for awareness and deeper consideration .

WHERE & WHAT  are the true causes?

  • The TRUE CAUSES of poverty and social exclusion are far from being eradicated  in Europe.

  • When the person has lost everything, and  also hope on the future, them does not remain other that to survival on the street where he will be: without  RIGHT , without  HOPE - HOME - HEALTH  and DIGNITY

  • These persons remain as a constant challenge and a troubling  sign not only of the economic crisis, but also of values crisis which underpin our democracies - values such as the social cohesion, the solidarity based on respect of individual rights, the equitable access to resources and services.

  • Homelessness is an affront to every value that we assign to the concept of CITIZENSHIP
    Homeless, are among the most marginalised in our communities  

  • All persons have the RIGHT to the best available mental health care, which shall be part of the  social  care  system.

  • The stigma  and  discrimination, related to the mental disease, are long-lasting  

 

Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity.    It is an act of justice !

It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the  Right to Dignity and a Decent Life.

While poverty persists, there is no true freedom
