Dr. Christoph MeyerChristoph Meyer

The Christoph Meyer Maths and Science Centre is a sub-project of the Christoph Meyer Foundation. The foundation is a not-for-profit institution established in 2000 in memory of Dr Christoph Meyer. Dr Meyer introduced pioneering hip surgery at Mseleni Hospital, operating on patients and teaching doctors in his spare time, and in doing so helping to greatly improve the quality of life of those with joint disease.Following his death, relatives and close friends put together a fund to establish the Christoph Meyer Foundation at the Vuka Mabaso Community Centre, which aims to improve community cohesion and opportunities in the Mseleni area.Today the foundation runs a variety of community-based projects alongside the centre, including the operation of rental units for small businesses.
