Wheels for the World
We have a team going to Kimilili in Kenya in February next year, and have places for another two or three volunteers. The container is due to be packed and shipped soon to arrive in time for the Distribution, which will be from the 8th to the 17th of February.
Ghana and Albania
We have two further Wheels trips that are in the early planning stages, one to Ghana in November next year, and one to Albania early in 2018. Dates TBC.
Sierra Leone and Mozambique (Churches Inclusion and Leader’s Events)
The Church is God’s vehicle in these times to reach the world. Encouraging and motivating the leaders is vital for the Church to realise God’s vision for His people. So we are beginning to arrange specific events to encourage, motivate and challenge the leaders to mobilise the Church towards the enablement of those with disabilities to fulfil God’s purpose in the Body of Christ.
Our first Leader’s Event will be in Freetown in Sierra Leone from the 13th to the 17th of April next year.
We are arranging another one in Maputo in Mozambique from the 31st of July to the 7th of August next year. The Mozambique itinerary will include a separate Churches Inc. program to equip the Church to include and enable those who have disabilities in practical ways.
One of our Kenyan partners have a program where student therapists are afforded volunteer gap opportunities at their Mission Hospital. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable field experience before settling down to employment.

Each trip changes hundreds of lives, but costs thousands of pounds to run. Could you help, by fundraising or making a donation?.
