Joseph Sibeko Trust

On 19 June 1985, three-year-old Joseph was abducted by a stranger who bit off his nose, violently cut his face and throat, and cruelly gauged out both his eyes with a screwdriver. While the doctors were able to mend his trachea and later rebuild a nose with plastic surgery, he was permanently blinded. Joseph’s birth-name “Tsietsi” means Troubles, a forecast of his possible future.
