Durban residents protest for food and water

Residents for Shallcross Informal Settlement, Durban, took to the streets to protest for food parcels and water on Sunday.

The residents have been sent a water tank after the protest and the local councillor urged residents to apply to SASSA for food parcels during this difficult time.

The residents blocked Link Road; demanding water, which they say they haven’t had in over a week – and that’s concerning for them as they’re also at risk of contracting Covid-19 due to the lack of resources to maintain their hygiene.
