Hart House Wants to Register Vehicle

For most people having a vehicle is their problem, but for the Hart House management in Sinchu Alhaji registering it is their challenge.

They are crying for help to register a 15-seater mini bus donated to them by Antwerp-Banjul Challenge in March this year.

Geoff the CEO for Hart House (Home for Children with learning difficulties – The Gambia) with Rohey, his assistant, have asked for help to register the 15-seater minibus to be put in use. "The need for the bus is great, and here it stands wasting. We are not happy with this development," he said.

Geoff further said that the handing over ceremony attracted a high-powered delegation from the Brikama Area Council, the American Embassy with television crew and members of the print media. The delegation included the then American Ambassador, Barry Wells and his wife.

"Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, it (the vehicle) has not been used, as minor repairs are needed as well as to pay tax, for the insurance, and number plates etc. We need help to get these straight, and let the children enjoy something for their trips," he said.

"Our problems are many, and we are asking for people to help us. We still need help with painting, concreting, plumbing, window capping, the play-ground and, of course, the mini bus," he said.
