When the Jachi family moved to Orange nine years ago opening a medical centre in Zimbabwe was not in their visions.
Moving from Christchurch after "the big quakes", nurses Mark and Joyce Jachi set up with daughter Nelta Jachi.
They found jobs with the Western NSW Local Health District and Mr Jachi found a community within the Orange North Rotary Club.
There's nothing in Zimbabwe now - the economy has collapsedMark Jachi
Through their work and their new connections the couple and their daughter began devising a plan to help their country of birth, Zimbabwe.
Flash forward to 2020, the Orange North Rotary has helped fill a third container of hospital equipment to send to the province of Masvingo.
The family has built a 20 bed medical facility and collected enough beds, blankets, monitors and machines from the region to fill it.
Mr Jachi said there was two existing hospitals in the city before they established the clinic, however, one was private and only treated those who could afford it and the other was below standard.
"They weren't as friendly as us," Mr Jachi said.
The equipment has come from Orange Health Service, Molong and Dubbo hospitals,walkers have come from as far as Greenfield nursing home and linen has been collected from Newcastle.
The medical facility now has an emergency department and offers general practice, obstetrics, infant care, as well as the provision of mobility aids for care at home.
The family has paid for its construction and for shipping the goods themselves, without the help of gifts or grants.
The centre is both private and public, with the private patients funding the treatment the public patients receive.
There are currently two full-time doctors and the clinic hopes to employ another three soon.
Mr Jachi said while there is only 20 beds, the midwives, nurses and assistant nurses are always busy, treating people in the waiting rooms, halls and sometimes outside.
He said doctors are treating a high percentage of respiratory problems, HIV, and a lot of children presenting with malnutrition due to the ongoing drought in the southern region of Africa.
"There's nothing in Zimbabwe now - the economy has collapsed," he said.
With this shipment en route to providing life saving support, the Jachis are not taking a break, with a community library, school support and community farming in their sites for the coming decade.
