As-Suffa Homeless Outreach is a project run by As-Suffa Institute which is based in the UK. This Outreach project operates in various towns and cities across the UK. In November 2014, volunteers from the project tried to emulate the conditions of rough sleepers in order to get a better understanding of what rough sleepers go through.
The challenge was simple, survive for two days with no money, only the clothes you are wearing and a sleeping bag.
This short documentary shows a snapshot of what our volunteers went through.
The lesson we learnt? – If you can’t help a homeless person, at least acknowledge them.
