Lillian Cingo has one great luxury in her life – a mini whirlpool to soak her sore feet. It’s a small self-indulgence for a woman who spends all day on her feet, from dawn to dusk. Lillian’s job is, literally, to keep her hospital on track. She’s the manager of the Phelophepa health train that spends nine months each year touring the poorest, most remote areas of South Africa. This fourth Life programme catches up with the train in the province of KwaZulu Natal, where there’s just one doctor for every 4,000 people. With a full contingent of volunteer doctors, dentists, optometrists and health educations on board, the ‘Good Clean Health Train’ delivers quality health care to deprived rural communities.
