The Oosterlig Shelter is looking after 18 homeless men over the age of 50.
Social workers have regular meetings with the beneficiaries to help them work through their issues and get them back into a healthy state of mind.
It’s not all serious business, however. Every now and then everyone gets to have a bit of fun. Recently, they celebrated a beneficiary’s birthday with some delicious chocolate cake.

Through counselling and moments of joy, the dignity of the beneficiaries can gradually be restored.
