Privileged Hout Bay residents share their experience living in an informal settlement

18 July, 11:30 AM

Five households from the Hout Bay valley swapped their privilege and moved a short distance away to cold, tiny 3x3m shacks for the weekend as part of a #MandelaDay initiative.

This is how they found the experience. Watch.
