Dr is being flown down this morning on a private helicopter provided by a concerned citizen for the relief efforts. More doctors from are being driven down with emergency medical supplies. The response by citizens has been incredible!

2 yrs ago, ONE Church took in medical students who’d been illegally evicted by UZ for protesting against fee hikes. Now qualified doctors, the group noticed ONE Church calling for help with the relief. Today, Dr Ncube came to our service to pledge their support!
