DHL helps health workers get on their bikes

[ September 1, 2014   //   ]

DHL has shipped 880 bicycles to to Madagascar for rural community health workers on behalf of Transaid. The international development charity is pioneering a number of projects in the country to help improve people’s access to health facilities. The bicycles, sourced with the help of Transaid’s partner charity Re-Cycle (Bikes to Africa), are part of a programme which helps local health workers reach more patients and have resources for delivering medical care in remote regions. Before, health workers had to make difficult journeys through challenging terrain on foot to provide medical care.
