Who are “Rhythms of Life”?
Rhythms of Life are a homeless charity that operates in Central London. We were founded in 2008 by Andrew Faris, a former rough-sleeper on London’s streets of five-and-a-half years, and provide the homeless with food, clothing and hygiene supplies.
Andrew’s time on the city’s streets ‘felt like a lifetime’, and he vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to helping the homeless and vulnerable on his city’s streets. ‘I have always strived to help others in a way that I needed help myself.’
Rhythms of life served the first meal in May 2008. Without any regular funding and limited resources, we have learnt to work with what we have, relying on volunteers and public generosity. Due to Andrew’s persistent character, we have been able to give a helping hand to hundreds of people for over 8 years – serving nearly half-a-million hot meals in that period.
