      I would like to say thankyou to all of you that have donated towards the conversion of our 2nd bus cheys. The conversion is coming along slowly but surely. We have power installed as well as running water, emergency beds are in place and most of the structural work is done. Im hoping to have it completed and ready to go into service within the next couple of months. This is only possible with your donations, whether it be a one off donation or a monthly donation. It all adds up and really does help. For full updates
