We at I Care feel it important that the public are made aware of the difference between children who beg on the streets and actual street children. There are many beggers at street corners who have a home, a family and who attend school but, when school is out, at week-ends and during school holidays, go out onto the street, hands outstretched, begging for money.
Then there are the actual street children who, through no fault of their own, finr themselves without a home, no family and who don’t attend school. These are street children that I Care can help by giving them food, clothing, shelter and a chance in life.
If you are confronted by these children please direct them to our Hope Centre in Stamford Hill Road, opposite the Post Office, in Greyville, Durban. I Care will then be able to help the genuine street chilren.
