Why financial help is important?


One would not think that the humble, soft-spoken, unshaven man of fifty, sitting among the homeless, even has a university degree. Having once majored in history the man is also a professional librarian. He previously worked for decades as Head of Department at one of the most elite libraries in the country.

His tragedy is simple: in all document browsing, microfilm reading the man's sight slowly deteriorated. Today he finds it difficult even to read a simple newspaper. In addition, with the coming of the computer era, microfilm technology (of which he was a documentation specialist) became redundant, so poor man himself became redundant and was consequently fired. He was at that time fifty-five years old and half-blind. By that time he has worked for the library that fired him for 30 years. He tried several jobs since then, but with his eyes the only thing he finally could get was collecting dog-poop in a park in Budapest. The income he receives for that is so low that it hardly even covers his expenses for medicine and electricity. He is often forced to come to our shelter to be able to eat. 

He is an intelligent, well educated, good Christian man, who recently even lost his closest friend. If you can help him, pls do!
