Rough Sleepers @ SG露宿者@新加坡
S3P @ BTRTS
BTRTS is part of the Partners Engaging and Empowering Rough Sleepers (Peers) Network running shelters for the homeless, which are called Safe,Sound Sleeping Places(S3Ps). We collaborated with MSF on setting up the S3P@BTRTS as there is a need for short term accommodation for rough sleepers. There is also a need for S3Ps to be near hotspots where rough sleepers gather.
The Kreta Ayer district, where BTRTS is located, happens to be a location where a significant number of rough sleepers tend to gather. Therefore, we started with our S3P@BTRTS project in June 2019 to provide short term accommodation for rough sleepers in our Basement One level from 10PM to 6AM.
We hope that by providing accommodation and assistance to those who are less fortunate, we will be able to make a positive impact on their lives and our community.
安全安眠留宿之所 —— 新加坡佛牙寺龙华院
佛牙寺是PEERS的一份子，为无家可归的国人安排的庇护所，这些庇护所被称为S3Ps。我们需要与社会及家庭发展部合作建立S3P @ BTRTS，因为需要为无家可归的人提供短期住宿。庇护所应放置在附近有大量露宿者的地区附近。
佛牙寺所在的牛车水地区恰好是聚集大量露宿者的地方。因此，我们于2019年6月开始实施S3P @ BTRTS项目，在地下一层提供短期住宿。
S3P @ Buangkok 2020
BTRTS is part of the Partners Engaging and Empowering Rough Sleepers (Peers) Network running shelters for the homeless, which are called Safe, Sound Sleeping Places(S3Ps), organised by the Ministry of Social and Family.
During the COVID-19 Circuit Breaker period from 7 April 2020 to 1 June 2020, we helped set up and operate the BTRTS@Buangkok 3SP, so that even the homeless have accommodation. This is to ensure that their safety and health will not be compromised. We installed our temperature screening device, registration iPads, wifi, SafeEntry, etc.
In the shelter, other than providing basic accommodation to them, we also provide daily meals, beverages, fruits and snacks .We also prepared beds, mattresses, pillows, hot/cold water dispensers, washing machines, shampoos, soap, masks, hand sanitisers, and other essentials for them.
While staying at the shelter, our social worker will try to understand their issues and attempt to resolve them expeditiously.
