Adopt a Patient
The Naankuse Lifeline Clinic in Epukiro, in the remote eastern region of Omaheke in Namibia, is dedicated to the health and welfare of the San community. The Lifeline Clinic provides free primary healthcare to almost 3,500 patients every year. Of these 40% are children and babies, and more than 90% are San. As well as examining and treating patients at the clinic and at our outreach sites, we transport and admit patients in urgent need of medical attention to the nearest hospital in Gobabis, 120km away.
Help to provide free healthcare to San Bushmen through health-based medical care and outreach across the region.
Our healthcare provision is focused on the local San community in this remote area. The Lifeline Clinic is entirely funded by voluntary donations and run by a clinic manager, one nurse, one receptionist, and four translators. Further support is provided by short-term foreign volunteers.
The donation of USD 300 covers a month of medical assistance to supplement procedures such as blood transfusions, X-rays, and CT scans; medicines such as antibiotics and vitamins.

The Lifeline Clinic receives no government funding and is reliant on the generosity of donors and medical volunteers to continue our lifesaving work.
