There are so many people out there in need of help, but caregiving, as a once-off act of kindness, unfortunately doesn’t go very far. Reaching out is something that needs to be ongoing for its impact to be truly felt.
The Phelophepa Health Trains brings health and hope to thousands of rural South Africans in need of access to health-care facilities.
Long before the dawn of South Africa hosting the 2010 Soccer World Cup, the Transnet Foundation recognised the abundance of football talent amongst its youth.
Transnet’s Phelophepa Healthcare trains will commence a maintenance programme after servicing over 150 000 patients across the country in the past few months. The two Phelophepa Healthcare trains (I and II) are heading back to Salt River, Cape Town at one of Transnet Engineering’s maintenance site for annual refurbishment programme. The two trains operates simultaneously from January to October offering primary health care to remote communities.
Although South Africa is rich in sporting talent, much of it goes undiscovered because it is hidden away in underdeveloped, far-flung areas and communities. Fortunately, our company does not shy away from these areas, but rather focuses on them and provide real opportunities to youth who fall outside the target areas of traditional sporting bodies. Through our Sport Development Programme, we can identify and develop young sports talent across the country and nurture it to excellence.
Our company’s Port Terminals (TPT) department recently launched its flagship student exposure programme called AIM in KwaZulu-Natal. The intention of this programme is to give youth residing in South Africa’s port cities access to the world of operations, maritime logistics, and the blue economy.
