Healthcare is the backbone of the community.
Rhiza Babuyile introduced anti natal healthcare services to the community of Diepsloot in March 2018, this helps mothers in the community to have an easier way to make regular check-ups.
We strongly believe that regular prenatal care throughout your pregnancy helps to catch potential concerns early and reduces the risk of pregnancy and birth complications.
Positive feedback is received from the community, and that is why is known as far as Soweto and surrounding areas.
Partnership with Toga laboratory and Philips has contributed to our quality care by reliable lab services and provision of state of the art equipment respectively. Our health service is based on National Health Core standards to ensure provision of quality care with emphasis on community participation and involvement.

“I have been visiting the Mobile Clinic since I was one month pregnant. My son is now 9 months old. I am happy with the service I receive because the staff is patient with us and the service is very fast. I don’t mind paying because I just take money from my child’s support grant. What I also love is that it is affordable, value for your money and I just walk to the clinic.”
