Village health team members from 43 communities in Iyolwa, a sub-county in eastern Uganda, received brand new bicycles this month thanks to our recent fundraising campaign. Malaria Consortium launched the campaign earlier this year to provide these trained community health workers with a bicycle so that they can reach more people who may need their help.
Our fundraisers raised enough money to buy and deliver 43 bicycles, providing the volunteer community health workers with an invaluable means of transport in places where communities are harder to reach and children, who are particularly vulnerable to life-threatening diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and pneumonia, may require urgent treatment.
