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”
