Highlighting plight of homeless

■ Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) rallied its staff to highlight the plight of the city’s homeless on Monday October 10, World Homelessness Day, which aims to raise awareness around the challenges faced by people who find themselves living on the streets. The CTICC partnered with The Haven Night Shelter, one of four local community organisations the centre supports as part of its corporate social responsibility programme, donating an industrial washing machine and a tumble dryer to The Haven branch in Napier Street, providing toiletries for men and women’s care packs, and helping with various maintenance activities at the centre.
