Hi everyone!

My name is Mihaela and I am lucky enough to have all resources available to me to deal with the outbreak of Coronavirus. I started this page out of empathy for all the homeless people who are less fortunate. 

This all started with one homeless person sleeping next to my block of apartments. Every time I pass him he reads a new book, he is kind and always smiling. Today I passed him again and started thinking “if the whole world is panicking about Coronavirus and self-isolating what are these people going to do?” While most of us are worried about not being able to buy enough toilet paper, hand wash or sanitiser and overspend on food, we mustn’t forget about those who cannot afford that luxury. Rough sleepers don’t have access to good hygiene and due to the conditions they live in they are more exposed to this virus than most of us. They’re not able to go into self-quarantine or improve their immune system to prevent getting infected.

Today I am asking all of you to spend less money on panic shopping and instead donate to help those less fortunate.

Here is an article which explains the issue in a bit more detail: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/12/coronavirus-and-the-risk-to-the-homeless 

I really hope you can make a small contribution to help someone. 

Thank you for your time and kindness! Mihaela Pilsoiu
