On 17 December 2022, Uzwela Foundation visited The Salvation Army in Benoni to hand out Christmas gifts, treats, and cupcakes for the 33 men and women staying in the Goodwill Centre.

We’ve been visiting the centre for many years and it always feels like visiting a family.  They know you by name, are interested in how you are doing, and are just beautiful people.

Thank you, Antoinette Grobbelaar from the Salvation Army, who always accepts us with open arms and for the wonderful work you and your team do.

“The Centre is a bridge to a new and better life, providing comfort and care. It’s a place where people can stay while they get on their feet again. We give them a chance to reflect on why and how they got here. We help them work through their problems so they can change their lifestyle. We teach them self-worth, and some even find their faith. We let them know they’re not alone.”
