Hi everyone!

Times fly when your having fun! It's already been a year that we are part of the global giving society and it has brought us some great results. As told our in previous report, the mamabus is back on track again and we even we were even able to reach some additional villages with our bus. See above the beautiful picture of our bus in the new village Mawalla!

Furthermore, last october the "40 van breda" took place. During the Bredaase Singelloop, 89 participants with great perservance ran for our foundation. Not did they ran one of the four distances this day, but they ran all of them. They ran 5, 10, 21 and 4 km. A total of 40 km! This is a huge achievement and we are extremely proud that all of these people are so extremely committed to our foundation. All of them together collected an amount of over 20 000 euros for our foundation, surrealistic! We do not only want to thank the runners but also the donors who supported them. Once again, thank you so much! 

Upcoming January our chairman Suus will travel to Tanzania to check up on the bus and meet with those involved in our projects. During this visit we hope to optimalize all procedures of our bus. We everything runs smoothly our next step for 2020 is to analyze the opportunities for a second bus. Through a second bus we can enlargen our area and reach more mothers and children without compromising on quality of care for the current area. 

You'll we hearing from us!

Kind regards,

A tough setback

Dear followers,

Hereby our quartly report to inform you about our progress. 
As we have told you in our previous report, our nurse had started the training for the ultrasound equipment. We are very happy to say that she has succesfully completed this training!
But unfortunately, july wasn't our lucky month. We received the extremely sad news that our MamaBus got an accident and the driver ran away. As you can see in the picture above, our bus got severly damaged and wasn't able to drive anymore.This also meant our nurse could not perform the ultrasounds as she had trained for. 

But then there was this call today... 
We were informed that our partner TPC Company has repared our Mamabus. The CEO was so compelled to get our bus driving again that even provided us with a driver from within their company. It is great to know that we have such a loyal and thrustworthy person driving our bus now. 
We cannot express in words how extremely thankful we are for what TPC and FTK have done for us. Due to their benevolence we are back on track and we can reach the 24.000 mothers and children again that need urgently need our care!

Kind regards,
Team Driving Nurses

She is doing great!

Dear friends,

Sorry for our longer-than-average silence but we are back!
It is already june which means our nurse has started the training for the ultrasound equipment. She is doing great and we hope to finalize the training very soon!
In the meanwhile our MamaBus is driving around as always to perform care for mothers and children. We cannot wait to fully implement the ultrasound service to our bus.

Last april we received an amazing gift from the runners who participated in the "Haagse Beemden Wintertrimloopserie". The amount they collected for this project is almost a full month salary for our ultrasound nurse! Big thanks to all the committed runners!

Furthermore, our chairman Suus has given a lecture about our project to a bunch of primary school children. Ofcourse, this creates awareness for our project but we especially do this to teach the kids more about poverty. These kids new very little about the world outside the luxurious life in the Netherlands and were therefore totally shocked by the stories Suus told them. The kids asked a bunch of questions and we loved their enthusiasm. It would be great to get so much more kids in the Netherlands motivated through this way! 

Kind regards,
Team Driving Nurses
