Two Wheels for Life raise money to fund programmes in Africa that ensure life-saving healthcare gets to rural communities using reliable transport.
We are the official charity of MotoGP™ and it is with the incredible support of the racing teams, riders and the motorcycle community that we have been able to create a movement for good in the world of motor sport.
We work with local development partners to successfully combat the extreme challenges to health care delivery in rural Africa.
Two Wheels for Life supports programmes that ensure health care reaches the poorest and most remote communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. The programmes we support are operated by local development partner Riders for Health in Lesotho, Malawi, Nigeria and The Gambia. They focus on the issue of transport for health workers an essential but neglected aspect of health care in Africa.
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. They 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.
