How it all started . . .

The Church’s contribution to health care in South Africa has been enormous. In many parts of South Africa, the Catholic and other churches were the first to build hospitals and clinics and to provide modern medical care. Often that service was heroic, because of the difficulties of the environments in which these missionaries served, or because they cared for people in the front lines of violent conflict. Many times they defied the racial discrimination that was a norm in the region long even before the policy of apartheid was imposed.
