Helping the Homeless

On Saturday 16th October the Foundation went to Stratford to assist our friend Emdad Rahman & his ‘Soup Kitchen’ to feed the homeless.

The weather did not favour anyone as it was pouring down with rain. This was an experience Paul knows far too well from being homeless in his early youth days. The memories started flooding back and it reminded him of how difficult it was to know when his next meal was coming.

As soon as the table was set up, the pots had arrived full of hot food & bottles of water was laid out. Within no time the table was surrounded as Paul was given the task of filling the plastic bowls with vegan food (tasting delicious I might say). In under an hour the pots were emptied as the homeless had been satisfied & fed.

Paul said “I’d like to thank my friend Emdad for allowing me to help this evening & will always remember his words”

“By and large, people don’t choose to be homeless – they find themselves sleeping on the street because they are facing a major crisis that means they’ve ended up with nowhere else to stay”
