Refugee camps


A lone guard watches the empty tents of the Kaserne refugee camp near Johannesburg. The old Kaserne shunting station will be used to house thousands of refugees that fled from xenophobic violence recently .

The soon to be populated Kaserne refugee camp is in an old shunting yard in Johannesburg, but at least it has a roof, and the UNHCR tents are a far cry from the ones that most of these people had recently (if they were lucky!). The whole situation is really dire, these people cannot do anything to help themselves and will probably stay in these camps for a long, long time.
