nurturing food
washing away grief
washing the feet of the those noone remembers

for everyone

It only needs us to turn again
into the fading light
shining love into the faces of sadness
and make them bright again

Please use the share on whatsapp on fbook and all to make sure this  act of love from sheradia brown and breaking bread in both salt river and Obs
"This winter, Breaking Bread will continue to work with as many homeless people in Observatory and Salt River as possible, and we're asking for your assistance to do this.
Many of Cape Town's residents will be feeling the effects of the torrential rain and strong winds. While this may have caused significant issues for a great many people, it would be almost inconceivable to think about surviving outside during these conditions. Unfortunately, thousands of homeless people battle them every day and spaces in shelters has not improved recently.
Breaking Bread actively works with between 50 - 75 people every day by providing a meal via our Feeding Programme. We're still looking for some suitable premises, but this doesn't deter our tireless co-director Sheradia, who serves everyone from her own home in Salt River. At this time, we're only concentrating on feeding people and handing out physical donations (clothing, toiletries, feminine hygiene products).
This winter, please help us continue to provide some necessary provisions for the people we work with every day. We're hoping to raise R 10, 000 to help keep our organisation running. After paying for our year-end financials and outlaying all our remaining funds on our Feeding Programme, we're facing a struggle to cover next month's operational costs
