The long walk to freedom
Each morning, young children of the Cloverdene informal settlement start their long walk to freedom.Some are as young as 3, some make the trek alone, while others in the company of older children.
Their walk to freedom is not to escape oppression or political violence, but to escape hunger. These children find freedom from hunger at the Cloverdene feeding station that provides them with a healthy, nutritious warm meal that otherwise they would not receive.
After receiving their warm meal, many of the young children start the 200 metre trek back home, to enjoy their freedom from hunger.
Hunger and breadline poverty is a reality – not in some far off place, but right here on our doorstep.
Project Feed the Children – not charity, but true humanity in action.
