A Person is a Person ...
At present, several thousand people are living on the streets of Berlin. Health problems and neglect increase steadily over long periods of homelessness. These people are in urgent need of unbureaucratic healthcare, irrespective of their identities or circumstances.
Dr. Jenny De la Torre has been treating poor and homeless people without health insurance since 1994. In 2002, she founded the Jenny De la Torre Foundation in Berlin to provide support for the medical and social care of the city`s homeless. At present, the Foundation is working towards the creation of a medical centre for homeless people on Pflugstrasse in Berlin-Mitte.
"The only just society we can build is one that is formed for people. That will only become possible when we change the way we think. It will not be paradise, but a world in which everyone can feel human."
