The practitioners at Ubuntu Family Health Centre
13 June 2019


"UBUNTU" is a Nguni Bantu term meaning "humanity", but it is also translated as humanity towards others. In 2008, Archbishop Desmond Tutu described Ubuntu as the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. And nothing brings us more together than taking care of and healing one another.

You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity. This concept is so important in healthcare and a key value we live by at Ubuntu Family Health Centre in Sandton.
