New food container operational

Our new food container is operational. And, of course, our ‘bouncer’, Killer, has to make sure all is ship-shape too, hehehe! THANK YOU so much to all who made this possible. Work is now in progress on the operating theatre which will be in the old food container…

With huge thanks to the amazing team of 10 who worked their fingers to…

Our vans and volunteers work very hard and spend lots of time on the road. From 1 January – 15 February, our 2 old vans clocked up 1400km between PLUS our volunteers often use their…
