“The $18,500 will buy a four-cab vehicle, which means we can have people help with heavy lifting,” Mr Baker said.
“We went with an automatic because we would like a lot of people to be able to drive it.”
The final cost will be more than $18,500 but Mr Muleya had started saving, Mr Baker said.
“The vision is to get to a point where we can ask for donations and proactively go and receive them.”
