In Hungary since 1989, with the economical changes the inequalities among the different social classes have been increasing. The reduced number of working places, the social beneﬁt system all led to a growing number of poor. An increasing number of poor people, after losing their jobs, homes, and families later end up living in the streets and become homeless. My project has targeted and focused on homeless are living in a converted former German hospital train nearby the city center of Budapest. These people in the wagon became homeless for many different reasons. They have a wide variety of backgrounds and have different skills and experience. There are driver, electrician, carpenter, construction worker, waiter, seller, economist and sales person. Some of them are permanently working as street cleaner or do other skilled or unskilled job. Work as a figurant getting popular. The film industry pays a bit better, since Hungarian film studios attract foreign film productions. Selling Blood Plasma is an other option for making a little money in a relatively short time.
