Some people look at homeless people with contempt, whilst they are human beings too! Due to coronavirus, many homeless people spend the night in the shelter where 14-year-old Tijs is a volunteer. One of their biggest dorms can sleep 22 people normally. If they have a job, they try to find a room or a house they can share, but under the current circumstances that’s simply not possible because no jobs are available to them.
