vehicle urgently needed

Picture of the vehicle needed

In august 2008 Daktari bought a Chana 10 seater vehicle to safely transport the children to and from their village. Unfortunately recently we discovered the vehicle is not registered as a 10 seater but only as a 2 seater. The business that sold us the vehicle has since closed down and we cannot be refunded or have the vehicle legally changed!!! It is now vital that we get a 10 seater or more vehicle that is legal to transport the children and volunteers every week. This is why we are urgently requesting assistance from the generous supporters of Global Giving to at least find sufficient funds for us to pay a deposit to purchase a suitable vehicle.
