It has been an exciting few months for Riders’ program in the Zambia which has recently seen the launch of a new vehicle fleet in the country’s Southern Province. This includes 76 motorcycles and four trekking vehicles, which will be used to provide life-saving health interventions – including immunization campaigns. Training is key to the delivery of a reliable and consistent service, and all vehicle users will be trained in driving skills, road safety and daily vehicle maintenance. Training began in January this year, and is now well on the way to completion. 

Thanks to the help of our supporters, we are making a positive impact on health care delivery in Zambia.
