Homeless In Singapore
Homeless In Singapore - Part 3: How I Get Out of Homelessness
Singapore boasts one of the highest rates of homeownership in the world, but homelessness still exists. A nationwide street count in 2021 found 1,036 people homeless, comparable to the 1,115 recorded in 2019. Hidden in plain sight, the rough sleeper population in Singapore is largely forgotten and misunderstood.
What is life like for them in Singapore? Why are people homeless?
In this observational documentary, CNA tracks a group of homeless people over a period of five months as they work towards getting out of homelessness. We witness how they navigate the system, and mend broken social ties with the help of befrienders and social workers.
This documentary comes from the same team that brought you the hugely successful CNA observational documentary – Inside Maximum Security.
