Oasis crew take 77 children out on a Day Trip!


Last week Oasis Overland used 4 of our expedition vehicles to take out 77 children and 11 staff from the Harare Children’s Home we support. Our 6 crew, Benny, Amanda, Liam, Gareth, Kim and  Chris from UK say they felt fortunate to be part of such  a fun day. We drove the group to Harare Bird Gardens on Lake Chivero, where they visited the bird sanctuary and watched a bird display and then had plenty of fun on the bouncy castle, water slide and other inflatables we hired for the day. Each child also received an exercise book and set of colored pencils so they could take notes on the guided tour of indiginous and international birds. Lunch and candy floss was provided for everyone.  The funds were raised over the past year by Oasis office staff in UK via their bi annual comedy nights.

The children and staff, plus our crew, had a fantastic day. The children loved driving out to the Lake in our trucks and waving to all the passing vehicles and pedestrians. We are looking forward to organising our next outing for the children. A big thank you to all our crew who gave up their time to run this event and to everyone in the UK for helping to raise the money to fund the day!
