A South African based writer from DRC has written two excellent articles about xenophobia, including harassment, and a very touching “I” Story chronicling the very personal story of a pregnant migrant woman who was denied service at a hospital, and whose child died as a result...
...I’d like to call your attention to the two articles and request, please take time to read the stories and
post a comment if it all possible. Migrants and their supporters have few chances to make their voices heard,
and here’s a chance.
"Xenophobia at public hospitals" &
"Xenophobia is still alive"
(this data was extracted from an email forwarded to us by the editor of "genderlinks")
The word has several definitions, this is the definition extracted from the Merriam-Websters on line dictonary:(a): the movement, migration, or scattering of a people away from an established or ancestral homeland <black diaspora to northern cities>
Diaspora” is understood in our organisation as a group of persons living outside of their country of origin, but keeping and building strong links with each other. The term was chosen because it conveys both the idea of mobility and of networking.
African Diaspora Forum A federation of African migrants associations in South Africa.
Mission To build an integrated society, free of xenophobia. To facilitate relationships between all Africans living in South Africa: living together! To consolidate a shared feeling of belonging in Africa
Strategies To work locally, with communities. To promote dialogue and peace. To enhance culture as a starting point for exchange. To encourage joint initiatives.
