Paris homeless BOMBSHELL: 3,000 sleeping rough after minister claimed figure was FIFTY

The census was organised after a government official said that there were only 50 homeless people in Paris, while another argued that most slept rough “by choice”. The unprecedented census operation was carried out last Thursday night with the help of some 1,700 volunteers and 300 Paris officials, who scoured the streets in order to record the size of the city’s homeless population. The volunteers counted the number of people sleeping in doorways with little more than a sleeping bag for cover or camped out in makeshift tents. They also…

Macron’s government pitting economic migrants against refugees, says Amnesty International

The forceful statement was released shortly after the French government presented its controversial new immigration and asylum policy to parliament.

Macron’s BIGGEST test: French president could LOSE vote on migrant law as party divided

The bill will see the time in which illegal immigrants can be detained double to 90 days, and shorten deadlines to apply for asylum. It will make the illegal crossing of borders an offence punishable by one year in jail and fines. The new law will be presented to the French president’s cabinet on Wednesday ahead of parliamentary debates, which could be thorny as charities and left-wing members of his party blast the bill as repressive.  But the centrist government says it wants to be both firm and fair on…

After large-scale killings, aid groups find new ways to comfort

Charitable giving in the United States went up 4 percent last year, a nice jump after near-zero growth the year before, according to the Blackbaud Institute. The causes include a better economy, big hurricanes, and the ease of online giving. But also of note is that giving was even higher to faith-based and international aid groups. One reason may be a new trend in giving: With more places suffering mass killing of innocent people, whether in Iraqi cities or in American schools, charities seek to heal individuals and communities of…

How to help the Florida school shooting victims — and avoid scammers

But What About When GoFundMe Isn’t Policing The Platform? Given GoFundMe’s increased vigilance, donors should feel pretty assured making donations to the fund set up for the victims of Wednesday’s attack. “This kind of vetting of each and every campaign takes a lot of resources and it’s a huge win for the donor that GoFundMe is willing to do that,” Michael Lai, consumer protection expert, CEO and founder of Sitejabber, an online review platform, says.
