Unidentified women and a man drinking at home made brew at a traditional healers house on August 11, 2001 in Site C Khayelitsha, a township about 35 kilometers outside Cape Town, South Africa.  People come to the healer to get treated for illnesses such as HIV-Aids, headache, cancer, fertility problems, marriage problems etc, The people here usually trust the traditional doctor more than going to a regular doctor. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa. People usually come from the rural areas in Eastern Cape province to find work as maids and laborers. Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high, together with lot of violence and a growing HIV-Aids epidemic itÕs a harsh area to live in..Photo: Per-Anders Pettersson/ iAfrika Photos..
