Thank you, Mark!

Many thanks to this awesome man, his heart is just as big as his shoulders …

He sacrificed his bakkie and his time until midnight to help us deliver food. I have seen so much patience for a long time.

He climbed out at every point and listened to people’s stories, without getting impatient or hurrying …

Thank you Mark Struwig, you are an awesome man !!!

Our street people really surprised us!

Chef and I have taken leave yesterday because the thought that our street people can not make money in the rain and so can not eat  – unthinkable…

Thanks to Biscuit Mecca’s regular cookie donation, we were able to hand out hot coffee and cookies in the morning …

But we were surprised to see how they still work, gathering bottles in the rain, nothing prevents these guys. They learned to survive.

We are not their beginning and end, we are only a helping hand …

My heart goes out to the elderly who are still trying to work, the mentally disturbed ones for which there is nowhere to go…

Thank you, Jacques!

What started this morning as a quiet day of handing out cookies and coffee ended up with a storming ending…

But as always, Jacques, Medic of Pretoria North came to our rescue when Dolf had epileptic attacks on the street.

Everybody knows Jacques, but why?
Because more than anyone else in the north, they know day and night he is available for an emergency, without asking unnecessary questions, without convictions he does what needs to be done, in a soft, professional way, ALWAYS !!

People, you know him, refer him, support him, recommend him for your functions, meetings … he also has a family to take care of, and can not do everyhing for free at all, even if he wants to.

Visit his page, share it ..

Please keep our street people in your prayers

Hi guys I would like to ask for a prayer for our street people,

They make a living by collecting and selling plastic, cardboard, paper etc. Others are carpets and car guards, and sell vegetables and flowers. Others perform piece-jobs like removing trees and painting. This is all work that is very difficult in the rain can be “because if they are willing, the request is very little …

Besides people, there were about three people who wanted to make money donations, we did not receive it, please check with your banks, because I will not remember anyone wanting to donate something, I know crises happens,  I just mention it here so you know.

Food is currently running out, and as you know, we do not sell anything !!

However, at this stage, considering the rain situation (for which we are very grateful) we may exchange non-essential items for food … please note, not necessary items.
E.g. No-one needs a wooden cot with a value of R1500, hahaha …

If anyone has a problem with this, please let me know, no opinions, if you feel I can not exchange your donation for food, please let me know.

Thank you for the vegetables!

Donation received here in the north, this lady grows her own vegetable in wolmer at the back of her yard, and after handing out her to her neighbors, she still has plenty to give to our project.

It made me wonder, here are many large plots in wolmer, and it is an environment with the greatest need for food, is it about scarcity of water or what will be the reason why more people do not grow vegetables themselves? Must be because of the water because, as I understand, the soil is very fertile ..

Spinach, tomatoes and carrots!
Thank you very much …

We need some affordable spices, please.

Hi guys …. at the moment we spend a lot of money on spices and it does not last long because the pots are huge.
Chef is frustrated because he runs through spice and is not cheap.

Any suggestions we can get bigger size spices cheaper, as well as soup and stew thickeners.
Thank you smart people …
Pretoria north area please

We need to cover our fence.

Hi guys ….
Where do you get those nice wood or something like that one can you put in your fence or gates?

Our forefront looks horrible because we do not hide or sell donations, it looks permanent or we are moving.
I’m starting to feel sorry for my neighbours with their beautiful yards.

Any suggestions of something that will look nice, yet affordable and easy to install please man?
