Feeding in Braamfontein.
In the icy winter wind, three women sit on a concrete bench, each warming their hands around a cup of hot soup. Pretty, Nosiphiwe, Porcha and Ntombi all tell the same sad story of being homeless and sleeping under bridges, in doorways and on park benches. Even with experience none of them can find work. Their gratitude for this small but ‘heaven-sent’ meal and a blanket each goes straight to the heart. Thank you for caring enough to help these women, when others don’t.
