Providing Essentials for the Homeless and Unemployed in Johannesburg

Personal message

My name is Anonymous and I am homeless, can you help me? This could be anyone on the side of the road, sleeping in a shop doorway or under a flight of stairs. Speak to any of them and the first thing you would assume they say is that they would like a meal, it’s not.

Fortunately. most homeless people rely on their local soup kitchens who are doing phenomenal work feeding the homeless and unemployed. The following items are what the homeless really want – not want, but need. This Christmas, we would like to purchase 40 care packs to distribute to our beneficiaries.

The idea is to distribute a canvas tote bag to each of the beneficiaries with the following items:

1)     One pair of gloves (Unisex)

2)     One pair of socks (Unisex)

3)     20 plasters (for blisters caused by cold)

4)     Body Cream

5)     Lip Balm

6)     Super C

7)     A toothbrush and toothpaste

8)     Wet wipes

The cost of the above items totals the amount of approximately R200.00*

This amount is based on the cheapest price at the time of this article*
