György | Frankel Leó street
“I’ve had several jobs, but I’ve been living on the streets for 8-9 years, unfortunately. Not on the streets, precisely, I live in a homeless shelter as I want to remain human. But there for 3 years for example that I spent on the island. That was though. The winters, the cold, the sleeping on the ground, the searching. I’ve been a caretaker, gardener, delivery man, I worked in Margit Hospital, and though my former boss tried to keep me there, I became the victim of downsizing. ‘Do you want to send away my best people?’ - he had asked from his boss, but in vain, I was sent away. Now I’m getting close to retirement age so the situation will be much better. I will live quite well from those 70 thousand forints. The accommodation is 11 thousand and I can easily live from the rest. I have only one dream, I would like to have a little house in the countryside with my 8-year-younger brother. It would be great to grow a lot of things for ourselves, to potter about in the garden, sit outside staring at the view. We would enjoy ourselves in the time that’s left for us.”25. July 2016.
