“Our vision, to bring hope, empowerment and health equity to the poor in the rural communities of South Africa”
Two state of the art, unique trains that provide comprehensive, flexible and cost-effective health care services, to rural population of South Africa; whilst supporting, empowering, developing and educating students and communities. The trains bring “Health Equity”, and deliver measurable social and economic impact in South Africa. Phelophepa trains are a conduit for and support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
This cause has won global recognition for the innovative way in which it brings the best of modern medicine to rural areas in South Africa and how it forms an integral part of local community structures, supplementing or supporting existing facilities.
The two Phelophepa Trains utilize South Africa’s rail infrastructure and a collaborative effort has sprung up that brings together the expertise and services of various government, social and medical organizations to address important health care issues.
Phelophepa provides a simple, one-stop service for its patients everything a traveling hospital requires and the health care education outreach, ensures continued care once the train has departed.
