Summary

The Cycle Kosovo for Children is a fundraising event, started in 2014. Since then, a group of 40 - 50 cyclists participate in the annual tour, cycling around Kosovo, passing through major cities in the country, including 500 km of cycling and 6,000 meters of climbing. The tour continued each year with the same goal, namely raising funds to buy medical equipment for the healthcare institutions in Kosovo.

Challenge

In 2000, the infant mortality rate in Kosovo was 29 deaths per 1000 births, the highest one in Europe. Action for Mothers and Children, together with its partners, donors, and friends has been working on this battle to bring this number down for the last ten years to about 11 per 1,000 births as of today. Although doctors and nurses in the hospital of Prizren are doing the best to save the lives of children, working conditions hinder the excellence of doctors' performance in the clinics.

Solution

With the initiative of Cycle Kosovo for Children, a group of 40 - 50 cyclists will participate in the annual tour, cycling around Kosovo, passing through major cities in the country, including 500 km of cycling and 6,000 meters of climbing with the goal to raise funds to buy medical equipment for the Hospital of Prizren and provide them with the required medical equipment.

Long-Term Impact

The Hospital of Prizren is constantly struggling with lack of equipment and other medical necessities, and if we manage to procure the equipment they require, it will massively improve the quality of the health service they provide for a long time to come. This equipment has a larger longevity, and in so, will be within these clinics for the foreseeable future.
