By host - alicia-avila
A cafe chain that employs homeless people and runs a scheme to provide free food to rough sleepers has gone a step further, building a village of 11 houses in Scotland.

Up to 20 homeless people will be given accommodation in the new village to the north of the Scottish capital Edinburgh built by Social Bite, which was set up in 2012."Something special has been created," said Angela Constance, the Scottish communities minister at the launch on Thursday.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/05/good-eating-scottish-cafe-chain-builds-village-for-homeless

"The mark of any society is how you look after those who are most excluded." This is so very true.

There are many historic injustices for which this country, and its neighbours, should make amends. More hope of that now than at any other time.

This is what humanity is about! Very inspiring. Many collect, hoard and even steal what they do not need.

The mark of any society is how you look after those who are most excluded. This village says an extraordinary thing about how we all want the world to be," said Cyrenians chief executive Euan Aitken in a speech marking the opening of the village." I agree and I would have loved to live in such a country.

Pretty sure the problem isn’t a lack of people who are willing to build shelters for the homeless but the politicians/cops who come to tear them down shortly after.
