Main aim of the charity
The main aim is to provide global support (food, hygyene product , clothes) . For now, we focus on homeless person, but in the next months , since the team is growing , we will be able to extend our assistance to people going out of prisons, isolated mothers or fathers etc ...)
Each of us buy these with our own money, then put everything in common.
The group is made up of about 10 people (still growing) - 2 different teams. Every week there's a different team in action.
We also talk with them to identify their needs and limits, to help them get the assistance they need.
How the employee got involved and why
In our world , everything goes faster . In theirs , it's a totally different reality. Time passes by very much slower, they often feel invisible and unheard. Bringing food and hygyene products to them, not only feed them, but give them hope.
Some of them use that hope to fight for what they believe is their life purpose and get out of the street.
I started volunteering about a year ago.
What work does the employee do for charity
Every sunday, with a group of friends, I go in town to provide food , hygyene produts and clothes to homeless persons.
We take time to listen to them , their personal stories , to provide guidance , so they can receive the assistance they need .
