Angola: Authorities must do more to protect the vulnerable San people during Covid-19 | Land Portal

Language of the news reported: 

Malnutrition and food insecurity are major contributing factors to the San people’s vulnerability to the Covid-19 pandemic in southern Africa.

The San are extremely resilient people, successfully maintaining their culture in the face of the harmful effects of globalisation and modern societal pressures.

They survived the brutal European colonisation of southern Africa and a deadly smallpox outbreak brought by the colonisers. They have survived liberation wars and civil wars. But now they face another hurdle – the socio-economic marginalisation which leaves them highly vulnerable to Covid-19.
