The 'white squatter camps' of South Africa
Shanty huts sit next to clapped-out cars, as children sprint along the dusty wasteland under the scorching sun.
Beyond the flimsy shacks lie ditches and pools of filthy, stagnant water where mosquitoes breed.
These are the daily conditions endured by families in South Africa's 'white squatter camps' where there is little food, running water and no electricity.
While most white South Africans still land the plumb jobs and enjoy relative wealth, the number of poor whites has steadily increased in the past two decades.
Seeking to undo years of racial inequality - when whites were almost guaranteed employment and housing under apartheid - the ruling African National Congress (ANC) government introduced laws that promoted employment for blacks and aimed to give them a greater share of the economy.
This change, along with the global financial meltdown, has meant many white South Africans have fallen on hard times and are forced to live in slums.
