A few months ago our driver got into a car accident driving our van, no kids were on board thankfully, but the van got so damaged that it couln't be repaired. That car has been our main way of transportation for the children and their families to and from the hospital, making the tiring and expensive journey a lot easier, more direct and pleasant.
We have been trying to buy a new van, but getting enough money has been alot harder than we expected. Thankfully, we have been able to keep providing free transportation to the kids and their families by paying for their public transport fares. However, exposing already sick children to the risks of using public transport in the midst of a pandemic is obviously not ideal. We are working as hard as we can to get the new car as soon as possible.
Thankfully we have encountered numerous acts of kindness, and with the help of our community and everyone around we are confident that we will be able to afford the new van soon. Until then, we ae doing our best to keep the families safe and to make sure they have a way to get to and from the hospital so they don't miss any important appointments.
Thank you so much everyone, and we hope you are staying safe as well.
