Emergency Response Vehicle Donation
BCT is pleased to inform all its supporters and well wishers that the BCT Response vehicle that so many of you donated towards arrived safely and travelled to Chakama, Kenya on 10th October to begin its new life as an Emergency Response Van.
The Response Vehicle will allow residents in rural areas to be reached not only for medical needs but also natural disasters such as; floods, famine, fires etc. and our regular Free Medical Eye Camps across Kenya.
The Response Vehicles first journey saw it distributing Sorghum seeds just the following morning. These arrived at Benzaro, a village badly struck by recent flooding. This is an effort to enhance their food security in anticipation of the upcoming short rains that the area is prone to annually.
During our vans first day, Karisa Chengo, a 24yr old male who was involved in a road traffic accident that afternoon, was rushed to Baolala Dispensary (approx. 20km away) for emergency medical services. We have heard he is doing well and making a swift recovery.
As always, we are immensely grateful to all our donors and everyone who helps makes these worthy projects possible. Click for photo album.
