A jeep for the schools of the Niem mission
07/05/2021 - News
Following the accident caused by the explosion of a mine, which took place on Wednesday 5 May, which involved Father Arialdo Urbani, (here article), in which a man lost his life, on his way to the Niem Hospital, the AMICI Betharram Onlus Association puts in place the project “A jeep for the schools of the Niem mission” for the purchase of a new vehicle, to replace the one that was destroyed.
The new vehicle is necessary for the activity of Father Urbani who will resume his routine, made up of tens and tens of kilometers traveled to reach the 13 village schools in the Niem area (far from 9 at 125 km from the mission) entrusted to him and supported thanks to the Village School – Sponsor a Child Project.
It’s unthinkable to buy a traditional vehicle, which is absolutely unsuitable bumpy roads full of holes in central African.
We need a particular model, sturdy, suitable for the needs required by the activities carried out by Father Urbani.
From an initial estimate, the Land Cruiser 79 Double Cabin Pick-Up has a cost of € 50,000.
From now on, we thank those who, even with little, will help us to collect what is necessary so as not to “leave the missionaries on foot” and to continue, in this way, with the projects implemented by the association.
