Lockdown not shutdown
COVID-19 has changed all our lives. But for the homeless – one of society’s most vulnerable groups, they have no place to keep safe, they face crowded shelter facilities, food is scarcer, and they’ve no access to places that adhere to personal hygiene standards.
They need our assistance now more than ever and we need your help.
Due to strict lockdown protocols, we’ve had to reduce our services. However, during this time our running costs remain the same, yet our incoming is dropping. We are losing revenue from our Car Wash enterprise which has been a key source of income, we can no longer receive or sell donated items and our cash donations have begun to decline.
The Geoff Burton House which provides short term accommodation for our clients is operating with strict lockdown protocols, overseen by our very capable and hardworking supervisory team. Our premises continue to be used by our feeding partner Ladles of Love – preparing more than 2 000 meals a day that is distributed to feeding points in Cape Town’s CBD.
So please, if you can give a donation, however small, it will go a long way to supporting us and the people living on the streets through this exceptionally difficult time.
Your cash donations continue to assist us and our partners to provide food and short-term shelter.
