City guards who were patrolling the Vistula River noticed a man lying on the bank in a clump of thick bushes and grass from the river. They watched him for a while. He didn’t move and showed no signs of life.

The incident happened late Sunday afternoon near the Landing Plate.

“The man was lying close to the water and could roll into it at any moment. The water patrol notified the guards from the specialist department patrolling the boulevards” – reads the release.

Those from the shore, however, did not see the man. Even the security cameras didn’t help, because the view was obscured by bushes. The rangers reached the isolated location by land, thanks to the guidance of colleagues on the boat.

Hostels and heating centers for people in the homeless crisis

Warsaw has nearly 1,400 places that provide shelter to people in the homeless crisis. Since the beginning of December last year, a new facility has been operating at Kupiecka Street for 150 people in need. There are also three night shelters in the city: at 39 Kaczorowa Street, 15 Kupiecka Street and 53 Myśliborska Street, which can be used by anyone in need from 6:00 pm to 8:00 am. Meals are also served in the facilities – a warm supper and breakfast.

There is also a heating plant at each of these dormitories. In addition, on behalf of the city, Caritas of the Diocese of Warsaw and Prague runs a heating plant at 111/113 Grochowska Street, which is open seven days a week. There is also a diner and a bathhouse.

Help of specialists

A special city bus (MPP) also runs along the routes where people in the homeless crisis are most likely to be found. The bus provides transport between Warsaw’s aid points (heating stations, eating places, bathhouses, medical points, counseling points). The MPP team includes street workers, as well as psychologists and psychotherapists. They cooperate with the Municipal Police, e.g. when delivering hot meals to people staying in the so-called non-residential places.
