City mobilizes public service workers to help search for the homeless

SANITATION workers, taxi drivers, security guards, bus workers and 24-hour shop assistants will be mobilized to report and help homeless people, the city's civil affairs bureau said yesterday.

These workers will be told to search for missing people – those suffering memory loss or mental disorder, very sick patients, and children – and provide them help.

The city will offer temporary shelters for homeless people to avoid freezing weather.

The bureau published the addresses and phone numbers of 18 rescue stations that offer 24-hour free dining, shower and beds.

The rescue stations will send sick people to designated hospitals for treatment, the bureau said.
