I Care, together with various Stakeholders, took to the streets, in an effort to put an end to children begging on the streets.
Many adults are “hiring” children and bringing them to the streets of our city, in order to get more money from begging.
The children are left to walk among the cars at the traffic lights while the adults relax on the pavement. They do this to trigger at the heartstrings of the motorists.
We once again appeal to the public NOT TO GIVE beggars any money, as this only enables and prolongs their stay on the streets, but to rather donate to organisations such as I Care who channel the money in the correct way, in helping children to get a future!
