The Democratic Resettlement Community (DRC) is situated in the northeastern part of Swakopmund in the Erongo region. It was started in 2001 by the local community as temporary settlement for people, who had no means to buy their own home. 15000 people are living here under the worst conditions at the edge of the rubbish dump outside of Swakopmund. Their abode is put together by waste products. Many women are looking for food in the rubbish dump in order to feed their children.
