Siberia: the sleeping landAdd to Lightbox Download
A young nurse standing in the hallway at the ward for homeless in the hospital n. 9. Caritas staff and social workers take care for them once a week. They provide sanitation items, medical treatment and used clothes to homeless too. Homeless people are a marginalized group in Russia who are detested in society. They are very often subject to minor assaults, aggravated assaults and even homicide; most cases are commonly not prosecuted. Homeless live in the pipes of the community heating system, in tents and makeshift cardboard houses, at landfills or parks. Homelessness affects men, women, young and old, babies and children. Their lives are in constant jeopardy.
