Cape Town – Hundreds of refugees at the Bellville Paint City camp are once again fearing for their health after the withdrawal of their shower facilities following the expiry of the contract to provide them. They now fear that the withdrawal of their ablution blocks will follow.
Until Monday morning, when workers came to disconnect the showers, there were 20 shower cubicles and 12 ablution blocks at the site.
A couple of taps used mainly for laundry are now the only sources of running water.
The alarm was raised on Monday by Women and Children Concern (WCC) secretary Hafiz Mohammed, who speaks on behalf of the refugees.
