The Phelophepa Train of Hope
The Phelophepa Cause is nothing short of a miracle for some. The two unique Trains utilize the rail infrastructure in South Africa, to deliver vital health care to under-served areas.
With over 40 permanent staff and numerous volunteers, the train is more than a mobile hospital, it provides out-reach and educational programs and has thus far helped 14.5 million people and delivered over 500,000 pairs of eye-glasses since it rolled out in 1994.
It is a fantastic cause, is international recognized and has been nick-named by the people it serves, as the “Train of Hope”
The Famous Phelophepa Train…
— Bill Clinton —
Former US President
“By delivering quality medical services, education and outreach programs to the “poorest of the poor” in South Africa’s remote areas, The Phelophepa Train acts on principles to which you, Desmond Tutu, have devoted your entire life”
— Desmond Tutu —
“We sincerely salute your continued compassion and genuine concern, your strong sense of global responsibility and your financial support. We could not make this miracle happen without you.”
WE HAVE A WINNER OF OUR TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA! CONGRATULATIONS TO BEN SCHAPIRO
Here is what Ben had to say “My initial reaction was that I could not possibly be the only winner.
Then it began to sink in and I thought, wow, this is the most extravagant trip I will ever take and it is to a country that I once visited and loved touring.
I feel very humbled by the win and want to see the train in action and help with more than my raffle ticket purchase”.
We would like to thank all those who participated in our donation drive. We are sorry there could only be one winner, but with your help, many of South Africans have won. Thank you.
