Kaohsiung-- The municipal government of Kaohsiung has decided to provide homeless people in the city with clothes, hot meals and sleeping bags so they can keep warm as the weather turns colder with the arrival of a cold air mass.
Social workers and volunteers are being mobilized to go to areas frequented by the homeless throughout the city, to ensure they receive the assistance the city government is offering, social affairs officials said on Thursday.
Emergency measures to provide the homeless with shelter have also been activated, including opening service centers and negotiating with local hostels to provide beds, the officials said.
According to the Central Weather Bureau, an incoming cold air mass will begin to affect Taiwan on Thursday evening and could push temperatures down to about 10 degrees Celsius on Friday night and early Saturday in coastal areas of northern Taiwan, with 14-15 degrees expected in the south.
