A group of doctors and medical professionals have come together to help the disadvantaged communities in the country for free. The newly-graduated professionals from Cuba offer free health education, support for pregnant women and vitality tests. According to one of the doctors, it is their way of giving back to Mzansi.
Thabang Makale took to the #ImStaying Facebook group to share his post. The doctor is one of the medical school graduates who studies in Cuba under a Department of Health initiative. After returning, a few of them decided to form a group of medical professionals to help others.
"We came together to go the most disadvantaged communities of South Africa, to offer them free, quality and efficient health care services.Because of the opportunity we got from out beautiful country, we want to give back with all that we have"
The group offers health education, pregnant woman support, eye care, free CPR and advanced life support training, free self-defence classes for women and preventative screenings.
Social media users applauded their selflessness.
