Why we moved to a notorious Johannesburg suburb
It's one thing to speak about the desire to end poverty, hunger and homelessness. It's something entirely different to actually do something about it. One privileged family in South Africa tried to do just that by moving to a notorious neighbourhood in Johannesburg. But the neighbourhood ended up changing them in ways they didn't expect. Mpho Lakaje has the story.

Meet a family driven by a deep conviction to serve humanity Inspired by the plight of fellow South Africans living in poverty, the Branken family took a radical decision and relocated to Hillbrow in inner city Johannesburg; to contribute to the wellbeing of their new neighbours.
It's in between derelict buildings, poverty and the brokenness of Hillbrow that 8 year old Daniel Branken and his family are changing their neighbourhood. The Brankens moved to Hillbrow three years ago, with a dream of bringing positive change to this community.
