Hmmm, will reporting via one-service app help? Relevant agency gets informed and work on it.

A percentage of them do have a rental flat but choose not to live inside for various reasons.

There's also a lot of immobile old people in rental flat who need help also. Super sad 1.

That's huai moi suppork auto-euthanization. The poor can choose to off themselves anytime they wish. But the rich wouldn't allow it becuz they wouldn't hab anyone to exploit. Antinatalism to prevent even more economic slaves to be born and exploited too. :(

Rental flat can costs maybe $100+ monthly.

I read about people complaining where's the Swiss level standard of living but well, homelessness is an issue everywhere. Developed countries can have 0.1x% of people who are homeless. Just 0.1% of 5million will mean 5000. We don't likely see this much in Singapore so our stats is "better".

Why are they homeless? Anyone knows? In the past, I read some of them cannot stay with their "house-mate" in rental flat, so outdoor is cooler, so more comfortable or just want to wander. How?

If you volunteer, you will know that there are people that don't want to help themselves.. Some of the assistance they needed is to leech off the tax payers.

Say a $300 cash assistance was all used to buy beer?

Nowadays, many people know a lot of things but cannot discuss with an open mind anymore due to cancel culture.
