What would be a nice way of saying a crippled beggar?
For example I want to say "I gave some money to a crippled beggar who was begging on the road" but the word crippled and beggar doesn't seem nice (I want to write this down on a journal kind of place).
Any suggestions on how to put this more nicely?
PS:- By the way I don't need the wording to be very formal or anything. What I meant by "journal" was to mean something like a "diary". Sorry if it confused you.
