"I remember in Limehill about five babies died in my arms - at different times - because of exposure or malnutrition, because their parents had been forcibly dumped in the open veld without any food or shelter... The tears of those bereaved mothers still haunt my mind today." Joyce Sikakane, author A Window on Soweto
The is apparently from the Anti-Apartheid Poster Calendar for the year 1979 produced in Fall 1978. If so, the calendar part with the month and days was cut off. In 1976/7 the American Committee on Africa (ACOA) held an anti-apartheid poster contest. ACOA produced calendars for the years 1978 and 1979 from poster submitted to the contest. The calendars were produced in cooperation with the United Nations Centre Against Apartheid. Size: 17-3/4 x 12-1/2 inches.
