Bicycles for Healthcare Workers Kenya, Namibia, Tanzania & Zambia
A bike puts health care within reach for those suffering from disease.
The HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa continues to affect millions of people. The sick must overcome major transportation challenges to reach care clinics, forcing some to walk up to 12 miles to reach medical help. A bicycle can put life saving care within reach. Each year in the USA, thousands of bicycles are thrown away.
At Bicycles for Humanity – Colorado, donated bikes are shipped to rural villages where they provide mobility to health care workers and the shipping containers transform into bike shops--bringing opportunity to economically challenged communities.
