Deliwe from Zimbabwe living in Kensington, Cape Town

I am a foreigner. In South Africa, everything is better for us. When we came here our lives changed.

How has life changed?
In Zimbabwe, there are no jobs. The kids didn’t go to school. Here we can put food on the table. We can send our kids to school, as well as send money home to our parents who are still in Zimbabwe. Here life is also tough. We had a hard time in our last house. We have just found a better place to stay.

In our last place, 50 families were staying in a company complex divided by boards, we had to stay with our kids in one room. It was dirty, people did drugs. We were forced to move. The place where we now stay has two rooms, it is more expensive but at least it is better.
