City stretches it’s Give Responsibly campaign to the streets

The City of Cape Town’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Directorate took to the streets to raise awareness about indiscriminate donations to street people on Friday.

This campaign is known as Give Responsibly. Councilors and officials from the Directorate were stationed at 17 major intersections throughout the city.

Mayoral Committee Member for Social Development and Early Childhood Development Councillor Suzette Little said they opted for this activation to create awareness about the fact that street corner handouts are doing little else other than perpetuating the cycle of dependence and keeping people on the streets.

“The public has a shared responsibility for the well-being of street people. We must understand that there is a very good chance that the R2 or R5 handed over at the intersection is feeding a habit instead of the individual,” Little added.
