In November, our Executive Director Stuart Diamond handed over R6321.27 to the Social Development department of the Cape Town Central City Improvement District (CCID) towards its annual Show You Care campaign initiative, Hope for the Homeless.
This is a great springboard for our Social Justice working group which was formed and started work in September. Below, an excerpt from the beautiful letter from CCID Social Development manager Pat Eddy:
“The donation will go a long way in reaching our goal of raising R100 000 for our partner NGOs who work with the homeless community of the Cape Town Central City, many offering work-based rehabilitation programmes that give street people the chance at a better life.”
Other than raising much-need funds to drive the work of our NGO partners, the campaign aims to raise awareness of and empathy for the plight of street people, especially in the face of a global pandemic.
