Project Soweto

26 October 2019

Has anyone heard of Soweto? It does sound like somewhere exotic doesn't it ? Well, it is! And, it is a township in South Africa! 

Unfortunately, people living there are facing huge challenges in life - in terms of accessing basic necessities / some things we take for granted like water, electricity, housing, jobs or schooling. Furthermore, medical access is limited, with ambulance response times of 2 hours 30 mins and a relatively next to no first aid kits ... 

But there is a man setting out to change all that, and MedAid has recently been in contact with him to donate some medical equipment. Click on the Distributor Story page to read more about Project Soweto and Rocky Clarck- the man who is driving force behind these changes!
