Strong Collin needs a job.

Hi guys, Collin of Pretoria North is now an energetic boy for you, the guy told me seriously last night but he hears from other people they are called for work, but no one calls him … so let’s try again ..
He had already stripped a car in Wonderboom South, and the man was very satisfied.

Collin can strip cars, he is a good storeman, he can paint and do general handyman work.
Oh guys, any heavylifting (he is strong), whatever, call this strong man …

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.

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.

people do care/mense gee om : What we do…

Ruth and Cenci (“the Chef”) does an amazing job on the streets of Pretoria North taking care of the homeless.  Everyday after work they start preparing meals for close to 200 people and then start doing their rounds at eight in the evening, dishing out food and attending to minor injuries.  Not only do they feed these people sleeping in the streets, they also find donations in all forms to clothe them, assist them with finding jobs, organise lifts to hospitals when needed, and even educate when the need arise.

Their ultimate goal is to find suitable space from where they can run a shelter offering these street people accommodation and meals they can return to after their day in the sun working as car guards, recyclers, and simply walking the streets trying to find employment.

This couple is not a registered NPO but simply do what they feel is the right thing to do.

The costs to cover the following most basic needs easily runs into R5000 to R10000 PER WEEK :

  • Food.
  • Electricity to prepare the food.
  • Fuel to distribute the food.
  • Medical supplies to attend to minor injuries.
  • A multitude of other expenses for example polystyrene containers to dish up in.

Ruth and Cenci does receive a fair amount of monetary donations every week from donors world-wide, and also a large amount of local food donations.  However, they still sponsor a large portion of these costs themselves.

And that is the reason we appeal to you for donations – 10 X R100 donations can cover the costs of their operation for one evening!

You are most welcome to follow their activities on their fb page at, and on their website at

You may donate at any time.  Please deposit your donation directly in Ruth’s bank account:

Bank: Absa
Beneficiary:  Ruth Jacobs
Type: Savings
Account number: 58169366
Branch Code: 632005
Reference: Use the name of the person or the project you would like the money to go towards, else use “Mense Gee Om”

Please people, can we not help this man – he knows.

Willie can do petrol & diesel mechanic work, CO2 welding, code 14 and PDP and have already made furniture from pallets …

This man will only be to your benefit, and it’s only him and his wife ..

Car Washing Service

Look, if I had already tried to get people off the street, it was with these three guys.

Nevertheless, my way is not necessarily the correct way.

I sat down thinking how?

Okay, they wash cars in President Steyn and environment for an income. Now if you are in the North you should know very well, so I’m not going to bullshit anyone, we know where the money goes …

However, the plan is to market them as car washers and they will come to your house to wash your car, they have undertaken to purchase a phone by Saturday.

We advertise them by name (suggestions are welcome) and you call them to come to your house to wash your car.  They are really good !!

In doing so, they may just make enough space to rent a room, and get some human dignity back …
