I recently spent some time at the Elim Night Shelter in Elsie’s Rivier documenting some of the residents there. I was surprised to find many of those staying at the homeless shelter were white. It is a commonly held perception that it is only blacks/coloureds in South Africa who make up the homeless population, but with the change in economic climate this is also changing.
