Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], July 7 (ANI): The city of Hyderabad is crying out for more shelter homes for the homeless. George, who runs the Good Samaritan NGO in the city, said the government needs to build more shelter homes in the city. George has three shelter homes in the city, where 150 homeless live. Talking to ANI, George said there are 45 very old persons aged above 70 who are being taken care at Good Samaritan's destitute home for the sick and elderly. They abandoned by their families. George also said there is a need for the city administration to promote awareness about these shelter homes so that the poor, the aged and destitute don't suffer. Even police officials sometimes get these abandoned people to private homes and NGOs like ours, which in itself should inspire the government to create more shelters. Sunil was one amongst the abandoned who was brought to Good Samaritan home. He has recovered now and is helping the shelter home by serving the elderly. He also goes on rescue operations. He said, "I help them with medicines and clean them. I'm always at the shelter home." (ANI)
