The Overland Event is proud to be helping Motorcycle Outreach again in 2017.
Healthcare delivery in rural areas clearly depends on transport, and the vehicles used need to be systematically selected and maintained. Motorcycle Outreach is a registered charity (non-profit) which assists governmental and non governmental organisations to do exactly this.
Access to basic community healthcare is an essential and often forgotten need. Visits by healthcare professionals to remote villages improve child health monitoring, maternal and infant mortality and overall community awareness of basic health issues. Health education, routine vaccinations and early detection of health issues such as malnutrition improves lives immeasurably. It is reliable transport options which magnify the reach and effectiveness of healthcare professionals.
Motorcycle Outreach currently supports an established project in Indonesia and a new one in Tanzania. The money raised at the 2015 Event is ring-fenced to purchase a new bike for the Tanzania project. They will have a stand at the Overland Event, so feel free to ask all about their work.
