No one wants to have to leave their home, but many of our brothers and sisters have had to flee war, violence and poverty for a better life in South Africa.

The current violence targeting “foreign” nationals dehumanises all parties involved, both those perpetuating the violence and those who are victimised. No one should live in fear of their neighbour or be forced to resort to looting and violence in order to survive.

Xenophobia is a complex issue, and we don't have all the answers. Many of us struggle with whether the deep violence and economic inequality in Mzansi can be used to explain these senseless attacks. But right now we need to respond immediately to the needs of those forced to flee their homes.

    I still don’t know the right words to express my Gratitude to the Great Dr.Lusanda After been diagnosed of Emphysema in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. Lusanda in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from hepatitis by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that hepatitis can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I’m truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support. Contact Dr Lusanda today, Email: Drlusandaherbal(AT)gmail(DOT)com or www(DOT)drlusandaherbal(DOT)weebly(DOT)com

    God bless Dr. Godsent for his marvelous work in my life. This Testimonial needs to be broadcasted to every single American. keeping it from them is unacceptable. The worse day of my life was being told by my doctor that I had herpes type-2. It felt like I’d just received a life sentence. I spent the week alone, at home, crying, sobbing. Anytime I would be wake up or feel the pain, I’d pop a pill and try to sleep. It was awful. My house fell apart, I stopped eating, I didn’t talk to anyone. I literally shut myself in. For the next five years I lived in a state of constant depression because everything felt so hopeless. I am so incredibly fortunate that I found this email: dryareherbalcurehome@gmail.com. A trust worthy and reliable herbal doctor. I’m still in shock that the treatment protocol he shared with me actually works. Not only did I remove all traces of the herpes virus using his Root,Herbs and Healing Oil, I did it in 17 days. It seems so simple and in a lot of ways, I guess it is simple. Since that time, I have rediscovered my self. Shockingly it was a lot less expensive than I had envisaged. Against my doubts, it proves potent. But the important thing I’ve been 100% herpes free for a full two years now and its all thanks to DR. GODSENT JOHN. You’ve given me my life back and I’ll be forever grateful. Contact Dr. GODSENT JOHN on: dryareherbalcurehome@gmail.com. I wish you all luck in your decision. As for me, am a living testimony of Dr. GODSENT JOHN prowess in herbal medicine.

    My name is Sophia Precious, i am from New York City. I was suffering from HIV for over 4 years, i was hopeless until one of my friend directed me to a man called Dr Enoma, she said he cures the HIV and also said he has helped her friend with Herpes, Cancer etc, i never believed her but after a lot of talk, i decided to give him a try, just few days ago i contacted him and he told me what to do which i did and he prepared a herbal medicine and sent to me with prescriptions on how i will take it for a period of days. After i finished taking the medicine he told me to go for a test which i also did and when the result came out i was surprised to see that i am negative.

    No to xenophobia. Xenophobia is a sign of weakness where the weak attack the weak. From a point of strength, we can challenge multinational companies to make a difference in the communities they operate in, but from a point of weakness we can attack people who do not even play a significant role in the greater scheme of things.


    NOT IN MY NAME. NO TO XENOPHOBIA

    I am an African before I am south Africa…this xenophobia attacks wont solve any of the problems that we have as South Africans, people of this country are just too lazy to create work for themselves and they are also choosy and expects handouts. They drop out of school make babies and expect the government to support them and taking out their frustrations on our African Brothers and sisters simply because they don’t have anything better to do with their time and lives. I AM AGAINST XENOPHOBIA!!!
