WELCOME TO THE TSHIAMISO TRUST WEBSITE

The Tshiamiso Trust has been established to carry out the terms of the settlement agreement reached between six mining companies and claimant attorneys in the historic silicosis and TB class action.

The Trust is responsible for ensuring that all eligible current and former mineworkers across southern Africa with silicosis or work-related TB (or their dependants where the mineworker has passed away) are compensated. These beneficiaries are front and centre in all that the Trust does.

The Tshiamiso Trust has released its first Annual Report. Our Annual Report 2020/21 outlines our work, challenges and successes in the first year of our operation. It also sets out the steps we will take in the year ahead.
