For those of you who don’t know, the main form of transport in Uganda is a boda boda. These are motorcycles that line the streets waiting to take people places. I love, love, LOVE taking bodas - it is how I have been getting around since I arrived in October. Now that we have children with disabilities, bodas are not an option anymore! It is physically impossible for most of them to even get on a boda, or have one of us hold them while riding on one. Because we have a pretty sick kid (Zak) and don't know what emergencies may arise with him or the other kids, having to hire a private car every time we go to the clinic (which is a LOT) is too expensive and very inconvenient.
We have a friend who is selling this awesome car (see below). It is in good condition and a great reliable vehicle. He has agreed to let us drive it for a few weeks to make sure it’s what we want, which gives us a chance to get a jump start on fundraising!!! He is selling this car for $4,500 dollars. That means if everyone reading this blog goes right now and gives just as little as $10 dollars, we would be well on our way to purchasing the car! No amount is too small and if everyone pulls together and helps us out we will reach our goal in no time!
I was trying to think of a clever way to explain to yall how much we need a car, and how much of a blessing it will be to us and the children. But after staring at the screen for awhile and coming up blank I decided I better let the kids do the talking! Pictures do say 1,000 words, right?!
