The Phelophepa Health Care Train has been operational since 1994 and forms part of Transnet’s vision to be a cornerstone in the community and an asset to South Africa. The train aspires to deliver an affordable, accessible, Mobile Health Care service that supplements or supports existing facilities in the rural communities of South Africa. The Phelophepa is a unique train that provides a comprehensive, flexible and cost effective health care service which focuses on the needy sections of the population whilst supporting, empowering, developing and educating students and communities.

The psychology interns at UNIBS annually offer their services to the Psychology Clinic of the Phelophepa. For a period of two weeks they reside on the train and assist members of the rural communities with psychotherapeutic interventions, life skills programmes and referrals to other professionals.
