Homeless in Austria - Part I.
Today we’d like to introduce you our new project: homeless foreigners in Vienna.
In Vienna there are 5000 homeless people – and those are just the registered ones. Recently, they moved 25 homeless people from Stadtpark. There is a problem with an emergency shelter for homeless people from other EU countries because there is place only for 40 people, and there are around 46 people. A recent survey of homeless people in Hamburg shows that the proportion of foreigners has risen since 2002 from 17 to 27 (of Vienna there are no exact figures).
We made a little interview with a guy named Maglen. Maglen came here all the way from Norway just to find disappointment here. Now he’s looking for a way back home.
How long have you been on the street?
Just a couple of days.
Could you tell us, what happened?
It´s a long story.
Could you tell us?
I really want to keep it myself, just one thing: I trusted the wrong people.
