Clergy and church workers in the Anglican Diocese of Marsabit have large distances to cover, mostly on unmade roads, but few have cars. So far, the people of West Ham Archdeaconry have funded two Yamaha motorbikes which are now being put to really good use in Marsabit. Can we do it a third time? Yes we can!

Great news! Thanks to your generosity, we've raised enough to fund not just a third bike but a FOURTH as well. It's not just one person who benefits when we can provide them with a bike. It's the people across a number of villages who that person serves who gain. I saw our first bike go to Silas, who regularly rides a round-trip of 150 kms between the communities that he supports. The second bike started work earlier this year, and the third and fourth bikes will soon be in the hands of their new users. Now we can think about a FIFTH bike...

Having visited the diocese of Marsabit and seen the conditions there, I know how useful motorbikes are.
