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 ..

We need some help with IDs or SASSA applications, please.

Hi guys, we have made no progress with these old people’s IDs or SASSA.
If anybody can help, this money will help us to put them in a safe haven.
As I mentioned before, I will pay for your time to assist with this.

The absolute highlight of the week !!!!

The absolute highlight of the week !!!!

Where do you start thanking people for such a love gesture?
Sarie Minnaar took in oupa Desmond without conditions …

I have honestly never met anyone who is so comfortable with people, this man is treated like a king for the first time, and he deserves it, for many years he worked very hard here in the North. After his stroke everything changed and he was forced into the street.

Yesterday we went  to pick up his last good stuff that he stores everywhere for safety – these old people are abused everywhere.

He borrowed a thousand rand on his SASSA last month as he did not receive his.  Even though two  ladies on the group donated almost the exact amount to him, he was so robbed … he has to pay back R450 every month until June’s, now that is bad, it’s almost double. I hope but his information is wrong.

This is a concern as it forces old people to keep borrowing to keep going, while they are getting so little already.

He also saved the rest of his money with the vegetable Tannie, got there, only to be told she only had R160 of the R1000 she “kept safe” for him ..

He puts his good walking stick and clothes in another place, and the little boy did not want to fetch it.

I had to cry when Grandpa Desmond said “no more 5 o clock” getting up and did not know where to go.

Yesterday he slept almost the whole day because for the first time in many years he was allowed.

No elderly person earn to spend their last years on a shop stoep to be chased and humiliated.

He was so so excited about the television yesterday, and he has to get used to the fact that his belongings are safe.

Sarie, your days will be blessed for what you did here, I’m convinced.

Thank you for all the donations, we were able to quickly set up his room without running around after bedspreads for bed and bedding, bedside table, TV etc.

Thank you, Lord, for sending this angel on our way.

We need someone to help with ID and SASSA applications

Guys, we received donations from you and would like to use it as follows: we have about 6 old people on the street who do not have IDs, we need someone to help them.

If they have IDs, they can apply for SASSA, and we have a chance to get them out of the street.

We are willing to pay for this sacrifice.

I myself can not assist them with this, we work full time.

In addition, they do not know their ID numbers, but birth dates, I hope so here is someone who can help us with this.

Furthermore, uncle Chris will not be able to go.

We may also need the person to help them apply for SASSA.

Please, we will pay for your time because old people can not sleep on the street …

We seek rooms for old people

Quick feedback on Oupa Desmond’s SASSA situation: He did not get any money this month, he had to see the doctor first, he said they would see him again next month.

Two ladies paid money to replace his cash, which I would give him every night to keep going.

He now had enough of the streets, but like many other old people LOVE their Pretoria North, that’s all they know, they’ve been here for a hundred years.

My request today is rooms, wendys any kind of shelter for these old people, a place where they can feel safe in the evening, and do not feel they have to swallow their SASSA cards for safe custody.

Now I know where to stay is very expensive ..

If you have an outside room or and empty wendy, they are willing to pay about R500pm for that, we need a place to sleep for about 5 old people on the street … preferably Pretoria North. If the room is large, they may share too.

These are self-sustaining old people, they still take care of themselves and will not be a problem at all, you will not have to worry about them, they just want to be at peace and go for a stroll during the day.
