    Audrey Ngcaba – Generations and Regenration
    R150.00 inc. VAT

    Audrey Ngcaba worked as a nurse for 36 years in the public health system in South Africa. At the age of fifty-five, Ngcaba decided to take an early retirement after an ongoing frustration with her working environment. “I retired early because of insufficient human resources. There were not enough materials to work with, no gloves, no fluids for putting up drips. I tried for years and years but couldn’t work under theses conditions…When I retired I thought I’ve done my part. I’ve compromised and improvised up to a point…and then I had enough.”
