Personal message

Paballo Ya Batho, “Caring for the people”, is a volunteer-run soup kitchen in Newtown, Johannesburg, serving healthy meals to people in need every Wednesday evening.

We feed in excess of 250 people per week - fresh, nutritious chicken & vegetable soup, bread and fresh water.

The recipients are homeless people and addicts, and for many of them, it is the only food & drink that they get that day. We engage in warm conversation with then and assist where possible.

In addition, the sponsored ID (identity document) project enables between 15 and 20 people per month to apply for replacement ID cards – required for work, access to social grants, medical facilities, voting, and more - and a volunteer dedicates a weekday morning every month to facilitate this process. In 2018, 195 replacement IDs were applied for with Paballo’s assistance.

Paballo’s call to action is for volunteers to meet with each other, and with the people on the street, and to share their humanity, to be generous in mind and action. The organisation is entirely volunteer-based. Paballo is a registered Public Benefit Organisation and has full tax exemption.

We are totally dependant on public donations, and appeal to you to assist us in keeping this very needed project running as long as possible.

Many thanks in advance!
