There are still lots of homeless people in my country including kids and the older ones. They sleep under the crossover with the cardboards at night . But they make money for their survival in many ways (like collecting the bottles and cans to recycle , selling the flowers and foodstuffs , asking money and so on ) . The rich people and the ordinary ones are always willing to help them out . We donate money , clothes and food to them on our way . But I've never seen such that idea of the video ; Haircut.
I totally agree with that idea and i love it.

I want to ask what is the meaning of I broke my hip? is it an idiom

The hip, or hips as there are two, are large bones in the body that attach the legs. When we say 'I broke my hip', 'I broke my arm' or 'I broke my leg' we mean that we broke the bone. I hope that helps Mayar.

Hi MAYAR,

Hips are a part of the body, at the very top of the leg. It's not an idiom. It seems Stuart had some sort of accident and got hurt.
