I am staying over with friends in Cape Town after the Word Riders tour. Their church had an outreach to a local squatter camp. They took food and some entertainment, with the gospel.
It is bad seeing people living in these conditions. And still there are a lot of babies born into utter poverty and desperation. These people are of all the races of our country. Some politicians tell the people that there are no poor white people in South Africa. Well, stuff the politicians, poverty knows no skin colour. People are people, and they all have some basic needs.
My heart break for the childrem born into this without a choice!
But how do you get the adults to get some hope, to get some self respect? How do you get them to just clean their living area a little, and not drown their sorrows every evening with poisonous concoctions?
We brought a little joy to the children today…
We fed them for one meal.
By now they are hungry again. And when the sun sets, this must be an extremely dangerous place. Specially for the children…
