Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

In March 2017 we will be taking part in ‘Cycle South Africa’ - a challenging 300 mile route over 5 days in aid of the transport charity Transaid. If you could make a donation to support us on this challenge it would be very much appreciated! You can read a bit more about the work Transaid does below.  Any donation you can make is very gratefully received and will have a real impact on Transaid's programmes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Thank you for your generosity!

 

Working closely with the UK’s Transport & Logistics industry, Transaid aims to reduce poverty and improve lives across Africa through creating better transport. Funds raised from this challenge will contribute towards the life-saving programmes that Transaid implements.

Good transport is essential for accessing emergency health care. An estimated 75 percent of maternal deaths can be avoided through timely access to essential childbirth-related care (World Bank). Transaid has introduced many innovative and community-led emergency transport interventions, which have enabled people to reach medical help. These range from bicycle ambulances, ox and donkey carts, motorcycle ambulances, and boats in Zambia, Malawi and Madagascar.

 In Nigeria the Emergency Transport Scheme helps transport pregnant mothers experiencing complications. To date over 10,000 women have been transferred to health facilities and in many cases those interventions were life-saving for mother and child. Here's a video of the Emergency Transport Scheme currently in operation in Zambia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iHSd2JgsX0         

Thank you for supporting Transaid.

That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
