Provide 15 villages with a bicycle ambulance


The most inspiring and powerful gifts on earth!

Most rural communities are remote, inaccessible and have no local hospitals. When serious injury or illness strike, local people have to walk for hours to get vital health treatment. This simple but ingenious bicycle ambulance is a game-changing gift that saves lives and improves health. It means that a gravely-ill person can be transported on a stretcher to a hospital by a family member without delay.
