Thobeka

Whilst visiting Sydney in Phillipi to get some stock shots with his kids, I took five minutes to take a photo with his neighbor, Thobeka and her daughter Zinam. She is unemployed and lives off a child grant from the government. What you see in the photo is everything she owns, there are no more rooms to her shack just the one in the image. This is fifteen minutes from where I live comfortably in my two bedroomed house. We still have a long way to go in South Africa...
