Sweden, February 2020
The Central Train Station in Stockholm is an unofficial home to many homeless. Thus, Know Thyself as Soul Center in Stockholm decided to prepare bagged lunches of homemade sandwiches and bananas with bottles of water.
After preparing the lunches at the Center, we drove straight to the Central Train Station and distributed them. The homeless people gave us a lot of joy and warmth. For example, one man was digging through a garbage bin when we handed him a lunch bag. He exclaimed to us twice: “May God bless you!”
The event really evoked in us encouragement and a sense of doing something worthwhile. These were simple gestures of handing out simple lunches but people were very touched. Perhaps they felt for the first time in a long period that someone cared for them.
