Make a donation to support Manna Society through our Charity Choice page
Homelessness has always been an issue in London and while many would prefer it were elsewhere, it exists in every borough, and given the economic times, has more recently got worse.
In Bermondsey, The Manna Society runs a day centre for the homeless, providing things that most of us take for granted: food, a toilet, a shower, clothing, advice and medical services. As they say in their Annual Report:
Our task is to feed and care for homeless people and those in need who seek our help
but there's more to it than that as they comment that:
The Manna Day Centre is a place of unconditional acceptance. Our task as we see it is not to judge but to love. We aim to respect the dignity and worth of each person we come in contact with.
Being a charity of course, resources are scarce. While they feed up to 200 people a day, they often have little more for ingredients than mince and canned veg. As people who live in the (food) community, we are committed this year to helping The Manna Society. As well as helping to supply and prepare food for the Society, we also seek to promote goodwill between the homeless community and the broader Bermondsey community.
