Welcome to Welkom
The country of South Africa is filled with informal settlements, frequently called townships or "squatter camps." During the Apartheid Era Government, races were forced to live in different areas. Typically white people occupied the town proper, and the other two races, "black" and "colored", lived in settlements at the outskirts of the town. Although these laws are no longer in effect, racial segregation is still a reality of life for most South Africans.
