Geoff makes final checks to the loaded container
Geoff makes final checks to the loaded container

Amid great excitement, Geoff Burnett, Dick Wheelock and friends in July gathered lots of different donated goods to send in a container to our partners in Benin. 

Items sent included a carefully-chosen and refurbished old Fordson tractor with plough and other implements, a 100 year old anvil, a cement mixer, various hand tools, a church organ, 42 bikes, many pencils and a printer!

The container has now arrived in Cotonou and been collected by Dick, Dieu Donne Kakpo and Geoff and is on its way to Affame.

We expect to hear news shortly and trust all is well! We'll keep you up to date with the latest news as soon as possible.

Thank you.
