Give Dignity

 ​​​​​​​​​​About the Give Dignity initiative​​​​​​​

The City of Cape Town is running an initiative to raise awareness of the plight of people living on the street. The initiative emphasises the importance of giving those in need a hand up rather than a handout. Instead of a cash handout, which often increases the risk of prolonged homelessness, we encourage you to make a donation.



The COVID-19 pandemic has made life challenging for everyone, and our most vulnerable residents have been the hardest hit. If you are in a position to make a difference in someone's life, then please consider donating, Your contribution will go to an NGO working in the community that has been vetted by the City. That way, you can trust that your donation will go to a worthy cause.

Your donation can help someone meet their basic needs, including:

  • Breakfast or a hot meal
  • A night in a warm bed
  • A mask or hand sanitiser

In the right hands, your donation goes further.

​​​​​​​​​​Donate​​​​​​​

Making a donation to a worthy cause is as simple as scanning the SnapScan QR code below with your cell phone.

DID YOU KNOW?

A Caring City: We run a safe space for street people under the Culemborg Bridge on the foreshore. The Culemborg Safe Space is a transitional shelter where people are able to spend the night, access ablution facilities and securely store their belongings. They can also access a number of additional services to help them reintegrate into society. 

Alternatively, there are a number of shelters run by NGOs that offer assistance. The Western Cape Government keeps a database of registered homeless shelters.

Find out more about how you can get involved and make a difference.

SBHOA BOARDWALK PROPOSAL

On 11 August 2020 SBHOA representing the community, presented a proposal to the City of CTown to please consider placing a boardwalk on the dune section of the beach.  We asked them to give us an understanding of the effect this could have on the biodiversity, as well as the community.

The City of Cape Town is in favour of the project, and will support Sunset Beach should we wish to fund part or all of the project.  

Should anyone wish to take this project further, you will need to fundraise, as well as get a clear understanding of the community's needs prior to going ahead with the project.

Thank you to the 70% who voted for this project, and also to the 30% who voted against it.  All the votes, comments and concerns have been noted, and can be found on the Sunset Beach Community page:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/sunsetbeach.capetown/permalink/3386233944753508

SBHOA have placed this project on hold until further notice.

Regards
SBHOA Committee

Sunset Beach Boardwalk Proposal

It has been decided that the Sunset Beach HOA will withdraw from this project.
We do not have sufficient back ground information to understand the environmental impact such a project will have, and if and when this information will come to light, we will consult with the entire community by means of a presentation and then make a decision based on the community feedback to go ahead or stop the project.  Further notice on this will be communicated to all.
