A Vehicle of Hope

In Zambia there is a chronic shortage of wheelchairs, elbow crutches, hearing aids and other equipment that we all take for granted in the UK. This is especially the case in more remote areas. We want to extend our outreach programme to other areas and for this we need a new reliable vehicle.

  • Need

    Need

    Provision of mobility and hearing aids for disabled people in outlying areas of Zambia, away from our base in Monze.

    Solution

    A reliable and appropriate 4 wheel drive vehicle will enable us to deliver the items to those in need, often across difficult terrain.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    We aim to supply appropriate mobility and hearing aids to around 600 people in the first instance.

    Activities

    » Deliver these items as quickly as possible.

    Success will be seeing these folk receiving and using their mobility and hearing aids.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Disabled folk being able to become more self sufficient in co-operative communities and being able to work.

    Risk

    Unreliable transport and lack of mobility and hearing aids. We have more than enough mobility and hearing aids available and ready in the UK to ship to Zambia as has been the case every year so far.

    Reporting

    Regular newsletters and emails to keep donors informed of progress and outcomes.
