Brenda Mashila (right) examines the place where her doll's leg used to be. Left is her cousin, Michael (7), holding a Santa Claus doll and center is Brenda's cousin, Katherine (10). Mashila and her siblings and cousins live with their mother in a rural area just outside of Johannesburg. Despite the fact that apartheid ended the year Brenda was born, her life is very much as it would have been under apartheid, with limited access to education and poor living conditions.
