Deb Shuka's Cape Camino Journal
"When I walked, my intention was to accept whatever came as gift and to be grateful. I worked to set aside my preferences and to embrace each new experience regardless of how it made me feel. The walking itself was the magic and the medicine, every step a miracle of clarity and connection." 

Deb Shuka from the USA walked the full 40 days of Winelands, Farmlands, Community, Sandveld and Strand, West Coast and Peninsula sections.

The Cape Town city centre sees an ever-increasing number of children on the streets. This is the story of just one 9-year-old boy who lived and begged on these streets. Josh was picked up by police officials during a routine patrol a couple of years back. He was referred to the ACVV Child Protection agency who finally located his biological mother in a local Kensington squatter camp. Sadly, Josh’s mother wanted nothing to do with her son, saying that he was nothing more than a trouble maker and a thief. As a result of this devastating rejection he was placed at The Bridge Shelter in Khayelitsha.

At the tender age of 9, Josh appeared remarkably tough and street-hardened, but in essence, he was a vulnerable boy surviving a shattered childhood. The first period at The Bridge, was tough. Josh bunked school, smoked marijuana and spent a fair amount of time attending children’s court proceedings for shoplifting.
