#HumanBeforeHomeless Walk 15/11/19

Personal message

Souper Troopers are thrilled to have met Tasneem Hoosain, a warm, caring social auxiliary worker, who has connected with the Troopers in a very healing way. We would love to be able to contract Tas on an ongoing basis to provide counselling and skills training to our Troopers, many of whom are severely traumatised by events in their lives both before and on the streets.

Tas is no stranger to the harsh realities of life, having been homeless for several years earlier in her life. During those dark days, she would walk from Newlands Swimming Pool, where she slept, to Sea Point and back, every day. 

"Walking became a ritual for me; it gave me a reason to get up in the morning," says Tas. "And what better way to honour how far I've come since those days, than to complete that walk one more time together with my new friends at Souper Troopers."

Please help us retain Tas's services to provide much needed counselling and training for our Troopers. The sessions they have started having with her are proving so transformative and providing much needed emotional relief, real evidence of our motto – #humanbeforehomeless.

We are walking 13,6km with Tas on 15/11/19, hoping to arrive at the beachfront in front of the SABC building next to Rocklands Beach around 11am to enjoy a picnic lunch.

Please sponsor us by donating to this campaign. You'll be giving our Troopers access to private and group counselling sessions that can help them shift their lives. 

We are all human. We all have a story. Together we are the change.

Souper Troopers

Souper Troopers Logo

Kerry Hoffman spent a day sharing soup and sandwiches with people living on the street and that experience led to the establishment of Souper Troopers, a level 1 B-BBEE contributor, registered NPO and PBO that aims to restore dignity to homeless people and help them reintegrate them into society, thereby achieving its purpose of eradicating homelessness.
