ETHEKWINI Municipality, in partnership with ICare and the Denis Hurley Centre, non-profit organisations that look after the homeless and vulnerable, invite the public to participate in the second annual Dare to Care Street Sleepover scheduled for Friday, 20 May.
The sleepover will take place around the Durban City Hall precinct, where participants will spend the night to show solidarity and support for homeless citizens. The initiative is aimed at creating awareness about the plight of homeless people and strengthen relations between citizens and those without shelter. It is also aimed at bridging the gap between the two communities and creating a better understanding of each other’s needs and circumstances.
Proceeds from the sleepover will be donated to ICare and Denis Hurley Centre and will be used to fund projects run by these organisations.
The sleepover offers an opportunity for the community to interact with and learn about homeless people and their daily struggles. On the night, the homeless and ordinary citizens will establish friendships, share a meal and possibly influence each other’s outlook on life.
Interested parties can sign up by visiting www.icare.co.za emailing idare2care @icare.co.za or
by calling 079 017 7515. Once registered, participants will receive further information, including a sponsorship sheet. You will then get your friends and family to sponsor you R100 each to spend a night on the street. All monies collected through sponsorships will be donated to ICare and the Denis Hurley Centre. Participation is not open to persons under the age of 16, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants between the ages of 16 and 18 will need written consent from their legal guardian. - Supplied.
