A call for help to the Shipping and Freight industry from the Homeless in South Africa

A call for help to the Shipping and Freight industry from the Homeless in South Africa

3This photo was taken at 0700 hrs in Johannesburg last week on my way to work.. As you can see, the outside temperature at that time was 3 deg C.. That night the temperature dropped to -4 deg C..

As I write this post and you read it in the warm comfort of our homes, most of which have heaters to keep us warm and cosy, lets spare a thought to some of the unfortunate people out there who are forced to live on the streets without any home, food to eat or blankets to cover themselves..

Shipping and Freight Resource blog in association with FTW, CFR Freight and Shipwreckers is organising a blanket and donation drive to help the homeless in South Africa..

CFR Freight, the leading neutral International Consolidation company has kindly offered to be a collection point for such donations and also distribute the same to the shelters.. FTW, the premier Freight & Trade Weekly in Africa has kindly offered to promote this drive on their magazine as well..

This year, the Shipwreckers Winter Social party in Johannesburg will be held on the 4th of July 2014 at The Sands, 58 Wierda Road East, Sandton, Johannesburg..
