WANTED! FOSTER SPONSOR
Do you remember the testimony of Sindiso Mbabe?
He was involved in a car accident this year and lost part of his leg. He lost everything and when he came out of hospital came to The Wellness Centre Trust for assistance and we were able to sponsor his ID and get a disability grant for him. Now he is living off the streets but we are not done assisting him.
He is well able to do bead work and sewing. At the moment he is living in a shack and we believe (and so does he) that he can improve on his living situation by generating a better income. He use to be a street vendor buying and selling clothes, he is able to sew trousers, shirts and jackets.
If anyone is able to assist him with us in getting into a job or being able to start his own business in the bead work or sewing field. Please contact Franck on 0713774212or email admin@thewellnesscentretrust.co.za

The main reason why many homeless and destitute end up on the streets is their constant search for employment. This number includes immigrants from other provinces as well as locals from Durban.
