We can all play our part in helping the needy
The City of Cape Town’s’ Social Development and Early Childhood Development Department will host hundreds of street people at its Safe Space to mark World Homeless Day.
Commemorated annually on 10 October, World Homeless Day aims to draw attention to the needs of people living on the street and provides opportunities for communities to get involved in responding to homelessness. Approximately 5000 homeless people sleep on the streets of Cape Town and it is a growing issue largely unnoticed.
The Safe Space celebration will include a host of services that the homeless people can access, a talent search and the venue’s second wedding in as many months.
Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith, will deliver the keynote address at 10:45, with the wedding ceremony scheduled for 11:45.
Date: Wednesday 10 October 2018
Time: 09:30 – 14:00
Venue: Culemborg Safe Space, Culemborg Bridge, Foreshore, CBD (accessible either via Old Marine Drive or Martin Hammerschlag Way behind Culemborg Toyota)
