Giving free transportation to the kids and their families to and from the hospital has always been a challenge, there's always something new happening everyday, like the time we lost our unit and had to come up with several ways to continue to make sue our children didn't miss a single appointment and had a way to go back home.
Here are some pictures of the kids we transport. Thsese kids and their families live very far away from the city where they get their treatment. These are also very poor families living in harsh conditions scattered all over the state, some of them live up in the mountains, some in farms in the middle of nowehere. But one thing they have in common is that they just can't get on a bus and come to the city. These are very isolated communities and having to make a roundtrip 2-3 times per week would be expenisve even for people with more money. So that's were we step in. We make sure they get home safely, our driver is almost a super hero, having lost a child to cancer himself he understand the struggle of these families. He sometimes stays up until 3 am after he drives everyone home, and he's ready to pick up people the next day.
Seeing all this hardwork with a single goal, helping people, makes us wake up everyday knowing we're doing the right thing. Thank you to our local and international community and everyone who's been helping us to help people. We all are contributing on making a big difference in somone's life.
