We are so excited to announce that we have a C.A.R.E. Africa van!!

Our Bus Project was a huge success! The staff and children of C.A.R.E. Africa are extremely grateful to all of you who donated to the Bus Project to make our dream a reality.

Check out the video above to see Emma , CEO of C.A.R.E. Africa, commissioning our new vehicle.

We originally had high hopes of being able to get a big bus, however, after a lot of prayer and research a used bus was not recommended. In Nigeria all buses are used for transport of people or goods to and from the major cities. These buses are driven hard over pot holed roads and have not received the necessary maintenance to keep them in good driving condition. Any used bus we looked at in our price range was too sketchy. After prayer and input from knowledgeable people we decided purchasing a used bus was not a risk worth taking.

It had never been driven on Nigerian roads before. Our fearless mechanic in Egbe, Ayo, looked at it and gave us the thumbs up. After negotiations we have made the purchase and she is already in Egbe, taking kids to and from the C.A.R.E. Africa Center.

Praise the Lord – our C.A.R.E. Africa children no longer have to ride motorcycles on the busy and bumpy federal road!!

Thank-you so much for blessing C.A.R.E. Africa with our new transportation!
