Supported by the FIM and MotoGP™ Two Wheels for Life raise money for Riders for Health and African programmes that ensure life-saving healthcare gets to rural communities using reliable transport.
Riders for Health is successfully combating the problems caused by the failure of ordinary mechanical transport in rural Africa to ensure help gets to women in threatening labour, that the sick reach care facilities in time and that critical tests for conditions such as HIV, AIDS and TB get to labs.
The programmes we support ensure vehicles can be serviced in rural Africa where there is no existing infrastructure for vehicle maintenance.
Average turn around time for diagnosis of HIV, AIDS , TB and epidemics like Ebola, is cut in half with reliable transport systems.
In sub-Saharan African 1 in 36 women die from maternal complications. Our programmes consistently reduce maternal and child mortality.
