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!

Cookies for Africa !!!!

Cookies for Africa !!!!
Thank you for your continued support every month !!!
What began as a treat has become a necessity …

These cookies are sometimes the difference for somebody starting their day hungry or not …

People sometimes forget that when they pick up a person for piecejob, that person has to work on an empty stomach before he gets his daily wage that afternoon.

Now that’s where the cookies come in …
In the morning there is a row of people in front of my gate asking for something to eat before they can start their day.

May you be blessed for what you do for less privileged people.

Without a NPO number, without having to claim back from SARS, and without having to be advertised, they just give.
