We always need support and help towards the cost of running and maintaining the Brigada truck. This is the lifeline to reach the villages where there is no bus service. And in an emergency, the only way for some people to get to the hospital. But the roads are hard on vehicles... and this 14 year old truck is dying.... it was not made for these roads.
We also need on-going support for the Brigada office expenses. Electricity is needed for the sewing and hair dressing programs. And for many other activities that are held in the offiices. And the offices need WiFi so that the students can do their homework... and because there are no land-lines, that is also costly.
We have started a fund to replace the aging truck. Without reliable transportation, Anita cannot help people in the community.
