Great pictures, all the bikes together, a short video and a time frame for the program.

Great news. The bikes have now been purchased in Tanzania and have arrived at the health facility. We've been looking so much forward to showing you the pictures of the bikes with the stickers on.. We think they great.

In the pictures to the left (click them to enlarge) you'll see the whole fleet of bikes bought entirely on Coins of Compassion from all of our members - which explains the the name "Bikes of Compassion".

St. Andrews Baby Unit Update, July 2012

26. July, 2012
Changing Faces and a Challenge for Sustainability

Since our last update, the St Andrews Baby Unit has had another new arrival. A little boy, estimated to be about five months old was found in a house in the local area. It is thought that he had been on his own for two days after his mother ran off and left him. He is now under the care of Matron Lucy and her team.

Another group of children has graduated from the baby unit to the main children’s home at Kandara – Lucy and Teresia have joined Newton and Jacob and seem to be enjoying themselves in their new surroundings. They still pop back to the baby unit to visit the staff and their friends.

There has also been another child fostered since our last update. Little Moses (the little guy with the hat on the picture above - click to enlarge), known as Mussa, was found by a river not long after he was born. He was rescued by some people who happened to be passing nearby and after the authorities had been notified, he... (Read more)

A personal story about a life saving operation at the Masanga Hospital

We recently received this personal story from one of the doctors undergoind special training at the Masanga Hospital, where we've funded 20 cesaerean section operations a few months back. This gives great insight into what kind of difference our Coins of Compassion are actually making:
