After 19 years and 77 containers Saturday 26th October saw the final container loaded and dispatched from our warehouse. The 3 hour window to complete the task proved more than adequate as a good number of folk turned up to help and the weather was kind to us.
This picture shows those who were left standing by the end. In true CHI style there was very little fresh air left in the container as every last space was filled with boxes and bags of every shape and size.
Large quantities of doughnuts, mince pies, tea and coffee were consumed. The final bag was persuaded to fit, then we all joined in a prayer of thanks for all that had been achieved and for safety and trouble free customs clearance for this last container.
To all those who have contributed to our container work in any way since 1994 we would like to say a huge THANK YOU. This is not the end just a new beginning, freeing up funds to assist those we serve to move from dependency to self sufficiency. So if you have supported our container work in the past please look a little closer at some of the other projects and prayerfully consider becoming involved in another area of our work
