Tenth Anniversaryby Elaine Herbert on 04/02/16
Near the top of the list of the most difficult things for a small charity to get funded is a vehicle. Yet ten years ago, in 2006 we were very fortunate to receive funding for a bakkie (a light delivery vehicle) and it has been a Godsend!
Ten years and more than 220,000 km later our bakkie is still working hard for the children of Mants’ase and for our Community Assistance Programme (CAP). We depend on it for shopping, taking children to the clinic or for hospital appointments, getting our Management staff to meetings in Mohale’s Hoek and Maseru, and for so many more reasons.
We would like to take this opportunity to pause, to say thank you again for this very valuable donation made ten years ago, to thank all who have contributed over the years to the cost of maintenance and fuel, to those who have supervised the maintenance, and to thank the drivers. Thank you all so very much!
We know we are going to have to replace our bakkie one day, we also know that this Nissan Hardbody is going to be a tough act to follow. Good little bakkie!
