  • relief camps were designed to provide employment, shelter and medical care for homeless and single unemployed men, and to prevent them from congregating or organizing in urban centres.
  • They would move bushes,build roads, plant trees and construct public buildings. 
  • They would get breaks and be provided with food that was not prepared the best ways.
