The non-profit organisation called Love Thy Neighbour feeds people with no roof over their head and no way to feed themselves out on the street.
It is estimated that there are 10,000 homeless people in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding area, drawn by the warm climate.
The 90-yr-old retired jewellery salesman, who won two Purple Hearts as an infantryman in the Second World War, refuses to turn hungry people away. He maintains the new laws setting restrictions on where food can be distributed are a bid to remove the people from the area. He stated that everybody has a right to help their fellow man.
Examining 187 major cities across the USA, a study found that more than half had laws banning sitting or lying down in public. Laws even ban people from living in cars, which is often a last resort for people who have been evicted from their homes.
Apparently, there is no available alternative, and more cities are choosing to turn the needs of homeless people into criminal activity.
What makes people homeless? They could have been evicted because of rent arrears caused by money problems, or the breakdown of a relationship with their partner, parents or family. Perhaps they have to leave because of domestic violence or abuse, or they've been evicted or harassed by their landlord.
I thank God none of these situations have ever happened to me.
But, what do you think about feeding homeless people on a public street? Is this taking 'Love thy neighbour' too far.
