An MSF doctor in Johannesburg From the 2009 report No Refuge, Access Denied: Medical and Humanitarian Needs of Zimbabweans in South Africa. A similar report was released this week because little has changed for migrants and refugees in South Africa: The Lives of Survival Migrants and Refugees in South Africa (via doctorswithoutborders)

I had a patient who was pregnant, and we sent her to the hospital. When she got there, the water had already broken. They took her to the nurses. When they looked at the patient and where she had come from – she produced her papers – they said ‘A foreigner?’, and they just walked away. They left her on the gurney.

Comments?
