Support for Homeless in Pretoria

With the recent killings of homeless people in Pretoria, Gift of the Givers and SAfm visited God the Founder Center for the homeless in Pretoria. This was in celebration of Mandela Day but also to highlight the plight of the homeless. For some it's a choice to live on the streets but for others it is due to unfortunate circumstances.

Gift of the Givers with SAfm donated bulk food, hygiene packs and blankets from Tiger Wheel & Tyre to the centre.
