Struggling in Struandale

Single mother Misiwe Masinimi, who is HIV positive, lives in a rundown shack in Ramaphosa, Struandale and had to take care of her daughter, Noluthando, 17, her mentally and physically disabled sister, Nomathamsanqa, 31, and Nomathamsanqa’s daughter, Unathi, on whose child support they all survive. After this gallery was taken, she died. Pictures of her burial and memorial service end the series
