#FloatTheBoat Crowdfunding

Since 2003 Vine Trust has been involved in delivering primary health care on the Peruvian Amazon and more recently on Lake Victoria Tanzania, utilising ex Royal Navy vessels. This new ship MV Forth Hope will build on our 1.2 million treatments already given on the Amazon by adding capacity for up to 100,000 additional treatments per year. Over the next 20 years Forth Hope is expected to deliver an additional 2 million, dental, medical and ophthalmic treatments.The estimated cost of delivering this new purpose built ship to Iquitos Peru and its initial deployment is £102,520. The delivery voyage is scheduled to depart Leith, Scotland by the end of May 2017. Any support you are able to give to our #floattheboat campaign will be greatly appreciated.

Currently Vine Trust is spending in excess of £500,000 per year supporting over 165,000 patient consultations in Peru and Lake Victoria Tanzania. Your donation will fund not only the delivery and deployment of Forth Hope, but enable additional funds raised to fund expansion in Lake Victoria Tanzania an area with one of the highest incidences of HIV anywhere in the world. What we save on the delivery voyage really will make a lasting difference in both projects.

Activity log

As Amazon Hope 1 & 2 reach the end of their useful lives, I believe that Forth Hope will be a great blessing to the indigenous Amazonian population, and a marvellous additional resource for the whole Project and its teams of volunteers.
