Homeless in Sweden

Revealing Sweden's Hidden Homelessness Crisis: Our Investigative Journey

 

Day 1 - Click here for Facebook post

Since December, we've been on the ground, following the plight of the homeless in Sweden. Led by award-winning investigative journalist Nuri Kino, our team has meticulously researched reports, laws, and resolutions, engaging with government officials, authorities, and grassroots organizations to uncover the truth behind the numbers.

From pensioners to single mothers, migrants to those left behind by the system, we've heard their stories and witnessed their struggles.

There are solutions, but the tools need to be changed, and the law has to be reformed.

Read the first article out of two that was published in the Swedish Daily News (Svenska Dagbladet).

It’s kind of extra heart-wrenching and at the same time heartwarming that it is published on Good Friday.

Happy Easter!

Children experiencing homelessness in Sweden: 9,400 have at least one homeless parent. At least 1,800 of these children stayed wholly or partially with their parents in various emergency or temporary accommodations during the week the measurement was made.

The second part of Nuri Kino’s article series on homelessness in Sweden is published in Svenska Dagbladet (Swedish Daily News), focusing on the new category—the ones not visible in the statistics. Here are some brief excerpts from the article:

For many women experiencing homelessness, intimate partner violence has contributed to their situation. They become trapped in a vicious cycle: They can't get a job because they don't have housing. They can't get housing because they don't have a job. They become homeless.

Several aid organizations also confirm that over the past three years, they have encountered homeless children. Children who, along with one parent, in most cases their mothers, are forced to move from one short-term accommodation to another. They live in sublets and therefore, for example, do not have a functioning school attendance. This means they cannot build close relationships with classmates and friends. Everything disappears overnight when the child is forced to move again.

There are solutions!
 

A small aside: at ADFA, we will continue our work for the homeless. In collaboration with Clara Church, Mitas Mat, Restaurangjouren, and Nordfrukt, we will distribute food to 700 in need. It's going to be very beautiful. We asked for the help of followers and donors and received enough to buy food for SEK 30,000 in Stockholm and SEK 20,000 in Gothenburg.

Thank you for all your help. Happy Easter!
