CompassioNow is dedicated to establishing and supporting effective medical clinics in African locations where the most basic healthcare is simply unavailable. While focused on delivering basic healthcare, the teaching and training of local people in basic healthcare practices and establishing community caregivers will have an even greater long-term effect by building self sufficiency in these communities.
In 2013, we had the honor supporting CompassNow with a donation of medical diagnostic equipment that was transported and gifted to the 1000 Hills Community Helpers clinic outside of Durban, South Africa. The clinic serves a community of 20,000 people and continues to add programs. The newest program is a safe house for children, families, and/or individuals suffering from physical, emotional, and financial abuse.
