A group of 'displaced people' at a lockdown shelter in Jeppestown see this period as an opportunity to reset their lives. Our photographer spent some time at the shelter and spoke to a recovering drug addict using this time for introspection and charting a plan for his future.
Recovering addict Themba Qalani, from Thokoza, has been using drugs since he was 15, and living on the streets since he was 18. He has taken on a leadership role at the Bertha Solomons displaced persons shelter as he attempts to use the lockdown to come clean of his addiction. Pictures: Michel Bega
