Last week Friday the Denis Hurley Centre played host to what has become an annual event, I Dare To Share. In conjunction with I Care, hundreds of Durbanites ‘dared to share’ Durban after dark, with three hundred and fifty homeless citizens of Durban, and one hundred non-homelesss, people sharing a night of food, music and fellowship at the centre. About half of the attendees also spent the night sleeping side by side on the street, allowing the more fortunate among the group to gain a glimpse into the life of Durban’s homeless population.

The Denis Hurley Centre, which is chaired by 2014 eThekwini Living Legend, Paddy Kearney,  runs year round feeding schemes, health clinics and adult education classes for thousands of indigent locals and refugees living in and around the city, with I Care focusing their attention on Durban’s street children.
