The Land Cruisers Have Arrived!

Last year, the FOF Canada Board of Directors discussed the need and the schedule for replacing the two aging vehicles used by Faith’s team in Zambia. The plan initially was to replace one at a time over the next two years. When we learned of an opportunity to purchase Land Cruisers at an amazingly low price, it was decided to act immediately and purchase two.

Land Cruisers are ideally suited for our work of distributing clothing and other supplies to our twenty four Centres. The reliability these new vehicles afford will mean the prospect and concern of a mechanical break down while out in the remote villages where maintenance and parts are unavailable is reduced significantly.

Also, the rugged suspensions of the Land Cruisers are built to handle the kind of ‘roads’ Faith and her Team must often travel to reach isolated centres. A trip from the Skills Training Centre in Kitwe to the Lungwa Centre is only a distance of 52 kilometres, but it can take just over two hours! Such are the conditions of some ‘roads’.

Faith has sent us a video and a photo showing the FOF staff and students in Zambia celebrating and dedicating the two new vehicles to God’s work.

Celebration and Dedication of the Arrival of the Two New Land Cruisers

Rural ‘Roads’ in Zambia

While there are some good roads that Faith and her Team travel on, this video will give you an idea of the difficult roads that she needs to drive on to reach some Centres. The new Land Cruisers are well suited to tackle these ‘roads’.

All Set For School

Here are some photos that Faith has sent of our FOF children as they head off to school.
In Zambia, children are required to wear uniforms and shoes to school as well as provide their own pencils, paper, books and backpacks. Thanks to all our faithful and generous supporters, including a school uniform provider here in Canada that has provided us with some of their ‘extras’ which the children are seen wearing, FOF is able to fulfill the requirements to enable our 4300+ vulnerable children to receive the education that can dramatically change their futures.
I hope the knowledge of what your support means to the lives of these children is a blessing to you.
As Faith’s Orphans Fund of Canada is a Christian organization and this is God’s work, we thank Him for all He has provided through us for His children in Zambia.

Faith is Coming This Month!

The rumours are true, Faith will be arriving here in Southern Ontario on May 16. Her current schedule for visiting the various groups that have been supporting the work of FOF is posted on the ‘Events’ page of this website. If you haven’t had a chance in the past to meet Faith and hear first hand the impact FOF is having on 4300+ vulnerable children in Zambia, we hope the schedule will provide you with an opportunity to do so while she is with us…it will be worth your time!
