Thank you for helping Grieta!

I would like to share today’s events with you, Pretoria Noorders you know Magriet / Grieta who is a car guard at the post office …

And sometimes you asked for a money here and there …
Well yesterday she had an epileptic attack on the street and got a bit hurt, a very concerned Danielle called us for help …

Today was a busy day, looking all over for accommodation, suitable for Grieta, many reached out, and with the help of our Heavenly Father we could succeed.

More details will be announced later, but I know there were many people in charge.

I want to reassure you, she is in good hands, her family is very happy with the place we got, she is calm and we believe and trust that she will be happy and she will definitely not have to stand guard over a car again.

And that’s how we help one by one, Danielle got the ball rolling by asking for help,

Jacques medic, as always, has organized and assisted an ambulance, Leona of Helping Hand has offered shelter, Erna cosmos has offered shelter,

In the end  we decided on Alet of Helpende Land new SASSA home in Pretoria North.

Petro, Grieta’s sister, picked up her at the hospital, took care of her and gathered everything with her colleagues’ co-operation needed for Grieta’s new home.

We need a job for Anna

Does anybody know where Johannes is?

I’m worried about Johannes, he has only one eye, with bad sight on top of it, is far beyond his good years, I was trying to sort out his ID so that he could apply for SASSA and hopefully so coming of the street.

He sleeps every night under a tree last robot as you drive from the north, Rachel de Beer stretches to the top in the direction of Wonderland.

Last night he was not there.

If anyone knows anything ..

Update on Samantha – LOOK AT THIS!

WOW !!!
If you ever wanted to see an example of people taking hands, here’s one !!

I’ve posted about Samantha who urgently needed to get into rehab, people from all over started calling around like crazy!

One day before she would be dismissed from the hospital and went back to the street, Veruschka and Hannelie prevented that.

Then there was the list of requirements, and again I do not have words, as far as the Free State donations poured in for Samantha ..

All of this would not have been possible without Veruschka’s help, the girl twisted her husband’s arm to help pick up, sort, name it and they did it, even picked Samantha at the hospital and took away …

It was a very emotional goodbye, but we’re sure it’s the right place for her ..

See list of donors (and sorry if you did not want to be called, I did not know)

Apart from allthe goodies received, we received a donation of R5000 rand, of which R4000 is donated to the rehab center, as well as the kiosk at the center so that Samantha can buy a treat…..

BREAK FREE REHAB. offered this program for Samantha for free, so I ask again if anyone can make a contribution from time to time they will be greatly appreciated so that they can help others in their position.

Purchases have been made, donations have been uploaded, and we can not thank you enough for everyone’s involvement here …

(And I know this is not a good idea to buy dogs because it creates a market, but there is a chance that the dog will be used for other things)

I need some help to close my palisade’s gaps

Hi, I want to close my palisade’s gaps. Many people have made suggestions for pallet boards, I’m looking for something that’s really looking nice.

We wanted to do it ourselves, but nobody here has time or energy, I’m not so crazy about the pallet boards, but …

Please, I do not want to do it for free …

Thanks a million – you are superstars!

Remarkable people ….
I want to highlight this couple today, and people like Sarie Minnaar …

Nellie & Marius are young, recently married, normal working people, , like most of us but with a life ahead of them.
One will expect them to focus on themselves as most young married couples do.

But not the two, charity is the order of the day in their household …

Every time we found ourselves in a crisis, they just arrived, without planning. Usually to help distribute food, and before they went home they took one or two of our people with them.

For Uncle Naas, they gave housing before he left for his daughter, for Oom Koen and Tannie Driekie they gave a place to stay before they found their permanent place, and more recently and more extreme !!!

A mother who found herself in a position where she contacted me for foster care for her child. I shared the situation with Nellie and Marius when we distributed food,

That same evening they did what the rest of us are afraid of, it’s about a month later, boy is in a good place, Nellie’s words: I could not have asked for a better child, he rejoices our house, our hearts. ..

How do you explain that a child with “problems” that has been sent back and fort several times adapts that well?

All in the name of love …

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?

I can only plant a seed, not do EVERYTHING!

Last night a street child came up to me, he said he got a job all by himself as a car salesman.

I think this street people are more scared of me than for the police because if they see me they quickly explain why they did not come for work or tannie, I’m going to get work tomorrow, tannie, I’ll show you a tannie.

Sometimes they come with lots of stories, and then his mate helps him, do not help you lie, the tannie knows aaaalles…

When I get discouraged, I remember reading somewhere … Just plant, it’s all that God expects, just plant the seed, He does not want me to do everything from start to finish … I’m struggling with it …

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!
