Video Linda Mashingaidze on social protection

Linda Mashingaidze-Shuro from South Africa is coordinator for the People's Health Movement. Africa is her working 'region'. She explains in this video why we must fight for 'Social Protection', the name of a two year campaign in Belgium.
We must empower the people for their right to health.

This video statement is recorded in Brussels at the office of TWHA. Linda was a week our guest. Together we visited all kinds of meetings, institutions and groups in Belgium. In her testimony Linda puts a link between "social protection" in Europe and elsewhere.
