Baan Phak Phing is located quite a distance out of town and public transport here is not as good as it is in The Netherlands. Therefore, we drive the girls to school every day ourselves. Each of the family homes has its own car, in which up to 12-14 persons can be transported. Besides driving the girls to school with the car, we also need the cars to do groceries, to do family visits (and the families usually live far away or in the mountains), and for outings. So, the cars need to be safe, strong, and in good condition. One of our three cars is 18 years old now and is past its due date. It doesn’t have enough power to go up a mountain anymore, and we need to take it to the garage regularly to be repaired. It also no longer meets the government requirements. If possible, we would like to replace this car by a new 16 seater van, which is the option to abide to the rules.
A new van would cost USD 39,000. Do you want to help transport the girls safely?
