SamuelSamuel Assafa has worked and lived for over 30 years in Sweden, the last period on Gotland, an island in the middle of the Baltic Sea. The business idea emerged from the possibility he had to get used equipment from the Hospital and other departments in the medical services on Gotland that was rebuilt.
Being of Ethiopian origin, he wanted to get back to serve his native country following his retirement.

The idea came up to set up a clinic in Ethiopia with medical equipment from Sweden and support from volunteer Swedish doctors. A network of medical staff, started to collect equipment to and inspect and renovate them to a good and adequate standard. A container full was shipped to Ethiopia in the autumn of 2006. Since then, he and his collaborators have worked on getting all the legal permissions and to build the clinic. A second containor was shiped in 2011.
