Karen Langley, my friend and fellow YASC volunteer, has spent the past year volunteering at a medical clinic in Mthatha, South Africa.  The clinic where Karen works serves a shantytown community called Itipini, which was built on an abandoned landfill.  The word “itipini” actually means “dump” in isiXhosa.  Last month the municipality demolished the shacks of those who were living in the community leaving hundreds of people homeless.  You can follow more of what is happening at Itipini on Karen’s blog.  Please keep Karen and the Itipini community in your prayers.

  1. You would think that, after so many years, Bishop Tutu's work would have solidified the understanding that such destruction hurts South Africa and her people.
