Voices from the Camps - Elvira Modesero

18 May 2015

Elvira Modesero is a Burundian nurse who came to South Africa in 2004, after fleeing ongoing civil conflict in Burundi. She studied nursing at the University of KwaZulu Natal, and currently works at St Mary’s missionary hospital, Pinetown, Mariannhill.

During March and April 2015 violent xenophobic attacks spread across South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal province, leaving seven people dead, several injured and more than 7,000 foreign nationals displaced.
