Partnering to Serve

During the past week the CAST hosted a team of medical professionals from International Medical Relief (IMR) to provide free medical serves to eight local communities.  Thanks to CAST and IMR, community members in Cato Manor, Mariannridge, Lamontville, Durban Central, Phoenix, and three rural communities near Wartburg were able to see doctors and nurses for a free medical clinic, classes to learn about good health, and medicine.  The clinics were hosted at CAST’s community centres and partner churches, and between 100-200 patients were treated each day.  The goal of IMR is to treat underserved patients with dramatic and often life saving results by providing medical services, medicines, supplies, training and education to communities throughout the world.  IMR is one of CAST’s partner organisations that help to serve local communities across Durban.
