AWMS Network, every winter we set up a” Help the Homeless ” volunteer event in collaboration with people who are actively involved in Social areas of the civilization. We prepare for these volunteers the arrangements and locations needed to do their work in a safe environment and give them the opportunity to connect with the homeless people and help them to resolve problems where possible. Our aim is to send signals to the society and help them to connect with people who are cut off from daily social life. The teams we assemble on every event are selected on expertise and professionalism. We have lawyers, doctors, and therapists, social workers, students in training for social work, hairdressers and a police officer, on call for all cases that are being handled. The concept of our project is simple, connect those who need help with those who can provide help. Create a safe platform where they can meet and talk and offer the means to those who enter in a conflict resolution. Guidance after the event by personal meetings on the same location the event took place. Each event lasts 2 months, December and January, 4 meetings in public with the volunteers and citizens with the homeless people.
Our next event is planned in Bucharest, on the Bucharest train station from 1 November 2017 till 1 February 2018
Example of one of our events, in Craiova. ( Feb 2014 )
Location for the event was on the Local Train station second floor in Craiova
We received from the rail road company the permission to use their second floor for the period of 2 months. Many homeless people were in direct need for medical support and have been brought to the hospital, and received direct treatment. The most common problems were infections with possible gangrene in development. The homeless people in Craiova have showed up most courtesy to all volunteers and people who visited the events. Many have found a new place to life and work on farms outside of the city. Others have found cheap housing thanks to the Craiova Water Company and a few have found their entrance back to their families. Consulted where needed relations have been restored where possible.
