On the streets, squares and parks of inner-city Cape Town we meet the most interesting and diverse kind of people. There are young homeless men and women who ran away from their neighborhoods to the city center in order to flee from an unbearable situation at home or from gang violence and there ended up in drug addiction, gang membership and crime Then we see South African, Ghanaian and Nigerian prostitutes, some of them were lured to South Africa under false pretenses by human trafficking and now see no way out of prostitution. Also then there are many glue-sniffing begging children who sleep under bridges or in doorways.
All of them have a sad story – but their story is not over yet!
We know that God loves these people, sees their brokenness and wants to give them new hope, inner healing and restoration. And so we try to just bring this love of God to the streets, to comfort people, to inspire and motivate, and identify the next steps in individual cases or to connect them with other people and organizations.
