If you have the desire and maybe some time, check out this website I found:
It gave me a better perspective as to why some of the beggars are in their current situation. I don't know what I think about their views toward ending street begging, but the information provided is helpful in understanding the situation more.
It's kind of long, so if you check it out, thank you. Maybe you could join me in prayer for these people and maybe pray for some followers of Christ to rise up and meet this head on. Pray that as we continue to say over and over again we want to know God, that we would know what and who it is God cares very deeply for.
