The Soweto doctor has shared the stories of some of the brave men and women who have been affected by the storm in Mozambique. Bhorat recalled that a man had been discovered gripping onto a tree through the cold nights.

When rescue teams finally found him, he had been badly cut and infected. Despite being in severe pain, the man refused the camp and demanded he be left behind to stay with some kids he had come across at the camp.
