Straatwerk Donations

Thanks to all of your generous donations this winter, Coats for Cape Town was able to distribute over 300 coats and 200 blankets to people in need through Straatwerk; a non-profit Christian upliftment organisation.

As the focus at Straatwerk is on habilitation programmes that encourage homeless people to move off the street, the coats and blankets were added to the cash reward that participants receive when they complete shifts in the system.

These projects help desperate and destitute individuals to earn cash in hand, by means of honest and hard work, as an alternative to aggressive begging, theft or other criminal activities.
