Quote of the day: 

We talk a lot about hope, helping, and teamwork. Our whole message is that we are more powerful together.

The homeless population in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, has reduced to the barest minimum (Pictured above-a homeless native couple). This is thanks in part to the Canadian city's new policy that mandates housing for anyone who's spent close to 2 weeks in a shelter or on the streets. It has become the first city in Canada to officially end homelessness, by adopting the “Housing First” plan, whereby homeless people are first given a place to live, before tackling the underlying causes of their homeless.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 285 million people worldwide living with low vision and blindness. A California-based organization, the Seva Foundation, has been working tirelessly for decades to eradicate this global issue, helping people in more than 20 developing countries around the world. On October 8 -World Sight Day, Seva -inspired by Sanskrit word for “service”, is celebrating by providing sight to its 4 millionth patient.

  9. I like the Canadian approach to homelessness - first tackle that, and take the rest from there. It is probably much easier and makes more sense to help people fight alcoholism and other illnesses and problems when they have somewhere to stay.
