Pharmacist Philip Jordaan from Kgubetswana near Clarens, in the Free State saw the need and potential of bringing pharmacies to the townships and rural areas to help people get better access to medical assistance.

This inspired him to branch out on his own and kick start the pilot pharmacy Kgubetswana just outside of Clarens, in the Free State. The pharmacy is a community pharmacy that operates from a re-purposed shipping container as the ground offered little to no reality for a brick and mortar structure to be built.
