Trying to get 'home'

We were contacted urgently about a man who was struggling to get housed in the town he was in.  His street daughter (not his biological daughter) was in this town and he was hopeful that would allow him be housed in that area so they could stay in touch.  Unfortunately he wasn't supported with this as well as hoped with this and it ended up badly with him miles from his friends, and with nowhere to be.  He is suffering with alcoholic dementia and his body is 80% covered with psoriasis, with 40% of that, open wounds.  He had no money to get back to his friends who were waiting for him, ready to take care of him.  We sent across a sum of money to provide some money for food and supplies, and to pay for his train ticket to return 'home', even though that meant still living out on the streets.
