Michael and his partner have been living in London for the past Ten years. In that time much has happened including that fact that Michael or MJ as he is known to his friends, is now a a UK passport holder.

Hence MJ’s Street Angels. Every sunday night MJ and a team of volunteers Make the food in MJ’s Kitchen , everything bought and paid for by MJ , then spend the night walking the streets of
Victoria giving away the the food to the homeless. For many people it might look like just another food charity but MJ’s operation is far more then that, it’s about Love and Friendship, These people need to still be able to hold on to their dignity and also their humanity and this communication , with MJ , every week helps todo just that. They can can talk and be hear with no fear of judgment.
