Sandwich programme

youth-for-christ-sandwich-programmeThe Outreach Teams give sandwiches to young people living on the streets. This is a good way to meet them on the streets, and engage with them to build a trusting relationship. Sandwiches can be prepared and dropped off at our offices daily (Pietermaritzburg and Durban).
