Lego Blocks of Bulembu

The recently revived Bulembu was once an asbestos mining town. It is now home to over two hundred AIDS orphans. In 2001, the mine closed after asbestos products were discovered to be carcinogenic and those still well enough abandoned the town in search of work elsewhere. A Christian organisation bought Bulembu in 2006 and utilizing the infrastructure already established by the mining industry, they have set up new industries generating products like timber, honey and water. Slowly people have returned and the old mining cottages are full of life again.
