Following a massive social response condemning xenophobic violence, 30,000 people showed unity and solidarity with people who flee unlivable conditions in their home countries by marching through the streets of Johannesburg.
Despite strong calls nationally from civil society against xenophobia, it persists at many levels, including health service.
There is deep need for policies and practice dealing with the treatment of foreign nationals in health service that eliminates discrimination.
There are still many people still staying in camps, some in shelters, and others displaced throughout Durban, as they all feel it is not safe to go home or to return to their countries of birth.
For now, those foreign nationals living in South Africa unable to return home are in limbo.
