Urban Vision recently had an awareness event called “One night in my shoes”. It was held on the 26th of March 2010 at His People church in Parktown North. It was a weekend of experiencing what it is like to sleep on the streets especially so close to winter.

The following are some of the things that were felt by more than one person:

  • It was an eye-opener.
  • My misconceptions were broken down.
  • Injustice towards the homeless was identified.
  • Not all the homeless are criminals.
  • “A real person with a real story, not just a piece of dirt on the street that we lift our noses to.” - Angelina Edje

It was a reality shock, changing mindsets and finding out the true stories of our brothers and sisters. It made others stop judging the homeless purely on what they see.
