The most important news we have to share is that The Humanity Hub opened its doors on the 31st of January 2021, the culmination of many years of dreaming to create a service centre for people who live on the streets.
The pandemic brought us together with several organisations with the same ethos as us – DIGNITY, LOVE & RESPECT. Together with our colleagues at Community Chest, Mini Meltdown and Ladles of Love we launched The Humanity Hub, which currently operates from the ground floor of the Community Chest building at 82 Bree Street, Cape Town.
At present, the Hub is situated in the Community Chest Building at 82 Bree Street and is open on Mondays and Thursdays from 9 – 2 for our clients, by appointment only. We are open Mondays – Fridays for donation drop offs by arrangement. Together with our partners we are working towards finding permanent premises for the Humanity Hub, which will then be open to clients every weekday.
Human Stories: Adam’s big catch
in Green Point.
Eager to become more self-sustainable, he realised that with help, he could slowly carve out a different life for himself. Motivated by the knowledge he gained during the life orientation course, Adam discussed with Tasneem an opportunity that he wanted to pursue but which required him to obtain his seaman’s certificate and to pass a medical exam.
In life we often need to spend money in order to make money. Thanks to our generous donors we were able to pay for Adam’s seaman’s course and medical exam. He has since been shortlisted to work on the fishing trawlers at I & J.
He is determined to change his circumstances now that he has access to Souper Troopers’ support services and a safe place to sleep at night.
Your contributions, in kind and in cash, make the biggest difference in the lives of many of our homeless clients. *not his real name.
