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 year, I am hoping to help raise funds for Yeoville Meals on Wheels to purchase at least 40 care packs for the homeless, unemployed, chronically ill and pensioners who rely on the Centre for their daily nutrition.

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*

I hope that you can help me to assist at least one person in need during these cold winter months

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