A Story of Collaboration & Hope
Msinga is a poor rural area in the heart of Kwazulu-Natal, where residents have no running water or electricity supply to their traditional huts. Tygerberg Medical Students have carried out medical outreaches in this area since 1981, shaping future South African doctors whilst also impacting the community they serve in. In what seems a forgotten part of the country, a small group of women are supporting their children and grandchildren through a grassroots business. Supporters have facilitated a borehole being restored and erection of community buildings to serve the village. These Msinga women use these facilities to practice the art of sewing, beading, crafts and crochet work. While their origins are humble, the work these ladies produce is of the highest quality.
