Our work in Cosmo City

The families who receive food parcels from us were moved to Cosmo City from Zevenfontein. At present, the municipalities are arguing over which of them has jurisdiction over Cosmo City, and, as a consequence, there are no social workers or clinics for the entire area.

One of the families we assist has sewerage running past their house because one municipality unblocked the pipes, but refused to fix them as they argued that Cosmo is not their problem. Why is it is the poorest people who seem to be neglected the most....?
