A final goodbye

We were made aware of an urgent case of a man who had been living in a homeless shelter, lost his phone and as a result lost contact with his family, as their numbers vanished with his phone. His family struggled to get in contact with him, and when they finally did, it was to tell him his sister had died and the funeral would be the very next day. He had no way to get there, nor did he have any suitable clothing to wear. So one of our contacts managed to get some an inexpensive shirt, tie and some trousers. They also organised the money for the bus ticket for him to get to the funeral, which he has attended today. A small, low cost challenge for us, but it meant more than words could say to him, as he could at least say goodbye to his sister.
