PEOPLE IN CRISIS

He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker,
But he who honours Him shows mercy on the needy. (Proverbs 14:31)
The poor are often most vulnerable when they are victims of a disaster and it is in times of crisis that we are called to respond with compassion – a compassion that is demonstrated in a practical way to alleviate suffering by providing food, blankets, clothes and at times building materials.
In partnership with other relief organizations we respond with food, blankets and care to people in crisis as a result of fires, floods, evictions or other disasters.
We have over 70 feeding projects located in various disadvantaged areas in Gauteng. These soup kitchens are run by our congregation members and home group leaders and Hands of Compassion provides assistance with food vouchers. Our soup kitchen coordinator, collects food from various stores e.g. Woolworths, Spar, home industries and re-distributes it to the various areas.
Food distribution is done weekly to schools, organizations and informal settlements, as well as to the sick who visit our clinic.
Hands of Compassion at the Church
Soup kitchens and bible study are held daily at the Church for people living on the streets. Counseling and assistance is given to anyone in need.
Our Food and Clothing Depot receives clothing and food from our congregation members which in turn are distributed to the poor.
Emergency Rooms are set aside for overnight accommodation at the Church (cnr Hans Schoeman and Rabie Streets, Randpark Ridge, Randburg).
If you have any contacts in the food industry, kindly call our soup kitchen coordinator Reggie Moonsamy at 011-796-4069.
