THE PHELOPHEPA TRAIN EXPERIENCE

By December 12, 2017Uncategorized
Train trips are a great novelty here in South Africa. Yes, there are those that do commute to the daily grind via rail, but for the most part one doesn’t really use them on an integral basis like one would in say, England. The novelty factor jumps a couple of notches when you go off on a train trip to provide primary health care in some far flung corner of South Africa. Every two weeks, for most of the year this is exactly what happens, as final year students of Optometry, Dentistry, Nursing, and Psychology board the Phelophepa health care train. Quite disappointingly the whole experience starts with a bus trip to meet the train at its next ‘port of call’.
