General Motors Garage, Kabala, Sierra Leone

A few weeks ago, before James suffered the car crash, he was (yet again) in Kabala delivering shoes.
He visited the General Motors Garage
and spent some time with the mechanics.
He told me that this garage is the BEST in Kabala.
I am happy to see that they do have equipment/tools
(maybe not updated as we have in America - but certainly more than most garages have to fix cars in Salone.). Even in the areas in which they lack tools, these guys have the talent to fix an engine by making do with whatever they have.

After spending a good bit of time
with the guys at the garage,
watching them work,
investigating the cars
and enjoying his time
at General Motors Garage
- James handed out more shoes
to the mechanics.
And once again, James, through your generosity,
spread around a little more
Nazareth House good will,
& love.
...and we've increased our family with a few more smiling faces.
Keep up the great work!
