LifePlace Team

Picture1Firstly we would like to thank everybody who has supported the LifePlace project in any way. As many of you may know, LifePlace in Durban has closed due to a conglomeration of various factors. In spite of this, the outreach team is still steaming ahead with weekly outreaches to reach out to women on the street, and on average, we speak to about 30 ladies per outreach. They have many different problems, ranging from homelessness and drug addiction, to being HIV positive, pregnant as well as being physically and emotionally broken through abuse. Many of them say that they are like zombies being dragged along by their addictions, but that they cannot help themselves. They also say that even though they know what they are doing is wrong, they don’t know how to get out and live a different life. There are many instances where we have been able to help the girls in different ways. Some have started working and are off the streets, others have had their relationships with their families restored, while some have even been rescued from death itself. There is much work to be done but there are just a few labourers. The  team that often goes out has a passion and a heart for the lost, and we are very thankful for all the effort they put into the work.
