Phelophepa Healthcare Train in Limpopo

The custom built Phelophepa Healthcare Train supplies quality healthcare to communities where health services and infrastructure are not yet fully in place since 1994. This Transnet Foundation initiative is still welcomed with open arms by the communities it visits throughout South Africa. The name Phelophepa combines elements of Sotho and Tswana, two of the eleven official languages in South Africa, and roughly translated it means “good, clean health”. A special team of resident staff live on the train for its annual 9 month operational period.
