The other day, I noticed from my balcony an SUV approaching the corner of a road. It was full of essentials to be distributed amongst the destitute who wait by the roadsides helplessly in hope of alms. In a split second, the scene turned chaotic. Groups of people surrounded the car as a man got down and handed out the bags. Soon, they were fighting each other trying to snatch the bags while some were trying to take them directly from the vehicle. The man immediately got in and began to drive away, but three others jumped on his rear bumper and somehow opened the trunk and began looting. Their condition is dire and these people are becoming more helpless everyday. The government should urgently intervene and devise a way to provide for them appropriately.
