COVID 19 Response

Living on the streets is challenging and especially during this COVID 19 period. Unfortunately this is a reality for the street-connected community.

When you see homeless children & youth begging on the street, you feel compelled to help. By donating to uMthombo uBuntu Campaign, you can change the life of homeless children & youth in a meaningful way.

Why People Are Homeless:

There are many factors that contribute to one being homeless and some of these factors are directly linked as to why many are still homeless.

  • Poverty
  • Abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Delinquency
  • Unemployment

In the next coming week’s uMthombo will resume it monthly food parcels distribution to street-connected communities living in derelict buildings as well as pre-packed cooked meals to children & young people living and working on the streets, in the greater eThekwini region.
