I met Edward and Jeanine when travelling through who said they like to come for lunch, then we piced rushan who lives in capricorn and comes through to be a car guard days ot muizenburg. James also joined us along the way and we travelled through to kalk bay . despite the rain everyone was in quite a light moods and we told silly jokes.
We got totally soaked in klak bay when we arrived at kalk bay waiting for the gate to open but managed to find the humour in it :.
because of the rain many from the shelter were also in for lunch which was fish and chips. some times days are sad, sometimes they are better byut what struck me was everyones willingness ot share smailes and warmth despite not easy circumstances.
I asked jeanine what she thought about shelters and rules. she said there are rules everywhere , also on the street,. she laos relfecticly smiled and said ..perhaps one day people will be more kind. I really hope for that day too when more people are accepted for who they are and cared for no matter who what and why. Im very grateful i have the chance to meet my fellow human beings in this way. The public is welcome to join us at wednesday 1.00 lunches now and then - youre really welcome but let us know beforehand soon at 1.00 at kalk bay on wednesday and if you like bring some goodies like small cake or cool drink.
Feel free to help with a small donation if you'd like. (R50 buys 5 meals and showers) it was nice as usual to give person another ticket for the week and those we met on the way who could not come due to lack of table space who we gave tiockets anyway amounting to around 20 tickets again for the week. we really appreciate the HAVEN food ticket donations that help us keep doing this. please CLICK HERE 12 september 2018
