Homeless People and Vulnerable Children COVID-19 Support

Homeless People and Vulnerable Children COVID-19 Support

Personal message

PEN (http://pen.org.za), in partnership with the Tshwane Homeless Forum

We need your support! We are raising money to care for homeless people and vulnerable children across Gauteng impacted by the COVID-19 lockdown. These people are scared and desperate. 

Isolation is extremely difficult for our homeless who are particularly at risk.  The mix of malnutrition, addiction, TB and HIV are a perfect storm for COVID-19 to manifest in the most severe way.  

Money raised will be donated to PEN, in partnership with the Tshwane Homeless Forum.  Together, they have set up 13 shelters to enable social distancing for nearly 350 homeless people. Healthcare and social workers screen people to ensure the elderly and women with children are accommodated separately.

They need funds to pay for:

• Food
• Toiletries
• Cleaning products
• Medical supplies
• Water and electricity

Thank you for your generosity! This is the time to let humanity shine through.
