Give Mi-change Vouchers

Homeless in Cape Town

Mi-change vouchers are redeemed across the city at partnering organisation. Each voucher provides essential support services and basic needs like a meal, shower, clothing or a safe spaces to sleep. Each homeless support center where vouchers can be redeemed offers two or more of the services listed above. 

Vouchers reduce money on the streets and access to drugs. Vouchers put homeless people on a pathway to recovery.

Why ?

A 2019 study found it costs significantly more for someone to stay on the streets than to help them leave the streets.  Read the study >

When you give a voucher, you reduce money on the streets and reduce access to drugs. Most importantly, you provide basic needs along with support, rehabilitation and ultimately work opportunities.

A voucher equals hope for a future.

Where?

Someone who is homeless can redeem their vouchers at partnering service centres in Bellville, Claremont, Durbanville, Muizenberg, Parow and Strand.

Cost?

One pack contains 4 vouchers to be given to four individuals. The cost of one pack is currently R50. You can purchase online or pop into your nearest shop that stocks Mi-change vouchers.
