Two Wheels for Life raise money to fund programmes in Africa that ensure life-saving healthcare gets to rural communities using reliable transport.
We work with local development partners to successfully combat the extreme challenges to health care delivery in rural Africa.
In Africa doctors, nurses and ambulance drives have to cover large areas. This is very tough as vehicles and fuel may not be available or reliable, and there isn't the network of well maintained roads or service centres we have in the developed world.
The programmes we support train and provide reliable transport to health workers who are able to reach villages and families whenever needed with both medical supplies and the education and instruction that must go alongside those remedies.
The programmes we support 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.
