Global 06 - Temporary Housing Suburb.

New homes that have sprung up almost overnight help provide better shelter as residents from Joe Slovo informal settlement in Langa not far from Cape Town, South Africa find a temporary home to live in. Actions speak louder than words here as local government acted & made an effort when a devastating fire raised a large portion of the township to the ground leaving more than 15000 residents without a home. Now the new suburb gives simple cheer in the fact that a roof again covers heads & communal taps provide water. Soon they hope to move to new homes that will be built for them but for now they find a place like this to rest & call home.
