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.

We need to find this you man.

If you see this young man in the north, he came to ask for work, which we could quickly get for him, unfortunately he did not arrive … we could help with a lunch box and shoes.

If you know him, please persuade him to take the job, his mother needs a lot of help … He is 30 years old.

Johannes needs a job.

This very nice young man calls me aside last night and says he heard I’m finding work for people and he would like to work very much, guarding cars and collecting tins is not what he wants to do for the rest of his life … I asked him, okay what can you do, he says anything, he’ll do anything, paint, maintenance etc …

I ask him, but what’s in your heart, what work do you want to do …

He says madam, I want to prepare food, I can prepare food, I’ve been preparing food for three years at Knight Rider cafe before they closed that time …

It’s so sad, these guys on the street forget their passion, and are only willing to do anything for some money.

I feel so bad that I often overlook the quiet ones (the gems), I’ve known him for more than a year, and never knew he could cook ..

Now I want to ask, even if homeless people are not your passion, just reach out to one, you can change someone’s life, without costing you a cent, there is NOT a more amazing feeling than knowing that you had something to do with restoring one’s dignity, self proud, call it what you want  – and you were part because you showed interest,  you gave someone hope …

Employment gives hope.
Employment says I believe in you, I think you can, now you should think so too …

Come on, let’s help a nice guy out of the street..please share if you can not help yourself ..

Update – previous owner/manager confirmed on fb page that they had to close down business and Johannes worked for them.

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 …

Wilhelm needs a job

Hi guys, I received this request from someone who cares ….

I contacted Wilhelm, he lives in Germiston, but he will move for a permanent job.  This man has been looking for work as far as the Northern Cape …

Please people, can we help him to settle down in one place?

He is healthy at only 55 he assured me.

He has experience and diplomas in landscape architecture, has been a horticultural manager, has experience in general maintenance.
In addition, he has a valid code 10 license.

Please, share, as you always do, he assures me he has sober habits, and must say when I spoke to him, it also appeared to be true, he has no dependents, so it is only him.
