Mobile clinic in Mabumbuza remote area.
We are the Center of Hope, and we believe in creativity while utilizing the available resource.

If a question may be asked, "who can think that our natural trees can be turned to be a hospital for under privileged and vulnerable communities?" This may sound insane, but it only takes one person`s initiative to start up a proper clinic for Mabumbuza. Together we can!
We accept every gift for a healthy community. #umcinaction
