Samsung HongKong HQ(Image source: Baycrest)Samsung has moved two of its solar powered health centres closer to Oasis Itsoseng Community Clinic in Cosmo City, South Africa

 The two mobile units have been set-up so people across Africa can recieve good medical treatment, providing members of the community with eye, ear, blood, dental, and pre- and post-natal screenings and treatments.

“Today, we are seeing an innovation we’ve worked hard on developing come to life, and it is very exciting”, said Kea’ Modimoeng, public affairs and common shared value manager at Samsung Electronics Africa.

“Good health is at the centre of one’s wellbeing, and impacts society at a fundamental level. It affects a child’s ability to learn at full potential, and an adult’s ability to provide for their family.

“This is why we have complemented our strong focus on education with a focus on quality healthcare.”

The solar powered health centre model was introduced in March this year at Samsung Africa Forum, however now being stationed in Cosmo City, marks the first time it has been made accessible to the public.
