Twenty Buffalo bicycles just like the one you see here are now in the hands of volunteer health workers who will use them for making home visits to the chronically ill in rural Zambian villages.

Cross held a special, one-time fundraiser for the bikes after we heard about an immediate need for transportation for the dedicated men and women who have been ministering to the needs of AIDS victims and other desperately poor villagers through the ADNZ Home-Based Care program.

Our generous donors rose to the challenge, and now we are privileged to bless the ADNZ volunteers with durable, easy-to-repair, culturally appropriate bicycles that will enhance their ability to serve. I like to think of it as “hope on wheels,” speeding the delivery of care, meals, Christian fellowship, and prayer to the doors of chronically ill men, women, and children who just need someone to love them.

Thank you to everyone who gave!
