South African Airways supports Phelophepa

South African Airways is proud to be a supporter of the American Friends of the Phelophepa Train, a 501-(c)(3) non-profit corporation, that raises funds and support  to provide medical care and treatment to those in need and living in some of the most rural areas in South Africa. Over the past few years, SAA has promoted its involvement with The Phelophepa Train and has donated time and in-kind support to assist in the organization’s great work. Friends of The Phelophepa Train are friends to SAA and the airline is proud of the strong relationship that has evolved. This shared passion for humanitarian causes, that our two organizations have in common, and the understanding that in order for South Africa to be a healthy society, its people need to be healthy, are the tenets that bind our two organizations.

SAA applauds the work that the American Friends of Phelophepa Train continues to do and looks forward to a long and successful relationship in helping them achieve their goals.
