Soup kitchen

Mandela Day Soup Kitchen Ashton 2017

Our 2nd Soup kitchen with a difference!! Ashton, Western Cape SA. Previous one on 14 July in Montagu on the same basis. Our 2nd #mandeladay on 31 July 2017.

Hundreds turned out once again for something to eat, something warm to wear, a blanket for the bed, some toiletries/towels, Milk, Yogurts, and even a spoil of a glass of Coke. We also went out to serve ad hoc street folk at a distance from where we were the same day!!

Thanks to a collaboration with VGK Ashton & Change Agents South Africa aka CASA. It was beautiful to see the church so full of people and serve so many, and cumulatively normally do not see the folk together as these pictures depict.
Thanks to CASA photographer and all their agents who came to help make this day an eventful one. Thanks to members of the church who helped at the tables, taking down names/signatures and a member of the public helping in the soup kitchen.

Comprehensive toiletry packs went to Silverheads Service Centre - some elders who are bedridden will not feature in our pictures.
