I meant street beggers only. In Ukraine there is no practice to call your home numbers asking for money. Yet....
People in real need are often afraid or ashamed to ask for a help. BUt in fact , if they ask , I believe lots of people help them. I agree with your words "we should give, not expecting to be repaid"
A friend of mine gave food to a middle-aged beggar in a London street. He ran after her, throwing the food at her, calling her a "f***ing b*****!" I think he may have craved alcohol, not food.
I am not sure they are not happy...I believe begging became for many people a way of life. They just can not imagine going to work and earning money. Of course all situations are different and some people DO need help but I think not all of them
