Riders Gambia Update, January 2008

Riders for Health recently visited Jahangka and Mandinari, remote Gambian communities which are now benefiting from improved access to healthcare thanks to the generosity of GlobalGiving donors and the work of Riders for Health. Both these communities now have uhurus, multi-purpose vehicles that can act as community ambulances, water pumps and freight carriers in a region isolated by great distances and harsh terrain.

Read the full report below to hear more from the families you have helped in the Gambia.

At the end of 2007, we also re-launched our website, to bring you more up-to-date news about our work. Visit to find out more!
