Everyone of us is aware of the many people struggling not all are aware of how to help the ones in need. Imagine, waking up after a restless night of sleep in absolute agony, surrounded by no comfort or any support. Waking up and not being able to go to school as you don’t have a pair of shoes on your feet. There are countless other struggles these people face every day. Homelessness is a common thing in our country. According to Global Homelessness Statistics around 7.5 million people in South Africa lack adequate housing.
Every small deed is one step more to help these people in need of food, a shelter and basic things such as comfort, someone to have a chat with and someone who truly feels the urge to help and make a change.
Soup from heaven is an organisation which strives to support the homeless in need in Cape Town. They are located in Bellville. Together they have built a soup kitchen, entirely out of shipping containers.
They provide the homeless with food and play with the young children etc.
