Mission Statement

The Tshemba Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a vision of fair and equal healthcare for all people in South Africa’s rural northeast. Our mission is to benefit the region’s overall healthcare system and provide volunteers with a stimulating and challenging skills-sharing and networking environment.

Description

The Tshemba Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a vision of fair and equal healthcare for all people in South Africa’s rural northeast. This unique medical volunteering programme provides the opportunity for healthcare professionals to treat, teach and learn, while also finding refuge in the quiet and beauty of a private game reserve.

Tshemba’s aim is to attract South African and international healthcare professionals from a wide range of disciplines, to volunteer their time and expertise for short- or long-term stays. Our volunteers contribute to existing services, supporting and complementing the work of local staff.

The focus of our volunteer effort is Tintswalo Hospital, which is based at Acornhoek, about 38 km from the Kruger National Park’s Orpen Gate. We also support a number of primary healthcare and NGO clinics in the area, as well as a growing community outreach programme.

As a Tshemba volunteer, you can enjoy tranquil and tasteful accommodation free of charge. This is the perfect escape from a hard day’s work. We offer a scenic hideaway and true bushveld refuge surrounded by an array of game, bird species and the great outdoors.
