- We are some of the 17 million people in South Africa who live in what the UN calls extreme poverty, that is, for less than £2 a day.
- We have to stay home because our kindergartens are closed. There is no water there, and water for good hygiene is needed to protect us from corona infection.
- We are in the daytime often alone without a parent because mom has to work.
