The daily struggles in Limpopo villages — Photo Essay
What’s happening in South Africa’s remote regions during the lockdown?
People in Limpopo’s rural areas have generally stayed home in line with the regulations of the lockdown announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
However, the daily struggle for clean drinking water, looking after livestock and collecting firewood leaves many residents with no choice but to venture outside their homes.
