On The Outters - Homeless In The City

On The Outters - Homeless In The City
I was amazed at the response to my post a week or so ago on the poor white plight in South Africa, and that so many of the readers here showed so much concern for the less fortunate in the community. You are great folks..!There were also some enquiries as to Afrikaner welfare organisations who are involved in charity work with poor whites.So, as a follow up, I 'm posting this article up to draw your attention to the Operation Winter Hope drive that is collecting blankets, clothing and food countrywide for distribution to the freezing and hungry who will be sleeping on the streets tonight...
Christiaan and Jenny
We don't even eat any more" says a blind and homeless Mr Christiaan Venter.Christiaan and his wife Jenny, have been homeless and living on the streets of Pretoria city centre for the last eight months.
"I can't even remember when last we ate a meal. Everything is absolutely grim. Since I was blinded, my whole world has fallen apart and I have lost everything. said Christiaan.In October last year Christiaan was shot in the right eye with a dart shot from a moving vehicle, his left eye was blinded some years ago, thus leaving him completely blind. " I was admitted for treatment at the Academic Hospital in Pretoria after the shooting, and four hours later I was told by the doctors that I was now permanently blinded and there was nothing further they could do for me, he explained yesterday.
The couple previously lived in Minnaar Street."One night thieves broke into the house and robbed us of the few possessions we had left. The took everything, even the clothes we were wearing at the time. We then moved to living on the street, looking for some safety at Visagie Street Tshwane Metro Police's verandah."It's safe here, just freezing cold, and we don't even have a blanket at night. said Christiaan.He explained that they had applied at various welfare organisations, but were told they could not be given assistance without a fixed address.Christiaan was left unemployed when the computer company he worked for closed down.
Operation 'Winterhoop'/ Winter Hope – is a nation wide drive initiated and promoted by Beeld, Die Burger, Rapport and Volksblad – as well as RSG, kykNET, Radio Rippel en Radio Kansel in co-oporations with various churches and charities .
They are collecting clothes, blankets and non perishable foodstuff for distribution among the homeless on the streets and at night shelters around the country.
There are many white South Africans that are receiving help from the various organizations involved in this drive. I have to say, that from experience with night shelters in the Cape, many of them take in women and children first, and there are many whitey's among them, don't think it's just hotties and darkies in there...a lot of the men are leaving the wife and kids in the shelter and themselves spending the night on the streets when there is no more place in the shelter. Kids are able to wash and dress there, and are getting a breakfast before they go off to school..Concerned citizens who wish to help out can deliver donations of clothes blankets and non-perishable food to the following collection points:

Die CMR gebruik miljoene rande om ouers sielkundig te evalueer en hulle te laat glo dat hulle mal is. Hoekom word dit dan net met blanke ouers gedoen? Is dit om sodoende hul kinders te verwyder omdat daar ñ "mark" vir blanke kinders is. Ek is Wielie Walie van Pretoria.

No longer does a music lover need to bother about
traveling out of range when a fantastic song comes on
over the vehicle radio. Regular workshops ensure that the staff at PVM Radio subdivision is not only up to date with the latest technological innovations, but also
ensures that the customers from diverse backgrounds are offered the best possible
services to suit their tastes. What s more is that 2G phones
can come in a tinier and slimmer package, even its batteries.

So now you can listen to any music from any
where non-stop and cost free. "Mike" is Mike Dean, according to the scanty information available, and beyond that there's not much about him. The banner ad may be placed on the same page listeners go to when they want to listen to the station on-line.

They want to win by playing their very best as opposed to winning by putting
the other person off. This means to sell your mods
would be considered the same as pirating the game itself.
