Michael de Silva and Andile Molasana became overnight stars on social media after a post about their positive attitude. The post was shared over 100 times.

Following a resident’s message about the two homeless men who wanted to make a change in their lives and not live on the street permanently, Heather Tager, chairperson of the Sea Point Community Police Forum (CPF), and Natalie Coetzee, the CPF’s field worker, helped the two men to new beginnings.

Coetzee contacted various partners organisations and arranged space at the Haven night shelter.

“When a person is willing to make a change to his life, the Sea Point CPF will always work around the clock to assist. This particular case shows exactly how one is only able to help those who actively want to make a change to their lives,” says Tager.
