Life in the city can be tough – unemployed youth, families living in shacks, refugees fleeing civil war or persecution in other countries, students far away from home with little resources, victims of crimes such as rape or assault – all these and many more need a helping hand, an open ear and a loving heart. As Durban Central Parish – with its Leagues and Organisations – we see these challenges amongst our members and in our neighbourhoods and strive to pass on the Good News of God’s love for all of us through the different initiatives described in this section.
