Bike For AIDS

Bike for AIDS
Bike for AIDS (09/10 Campaign)

Sometimes a little money can go a long way... especially on wheels. $200 will buy a bike and $380 will provide a bicycle ambulance. Bicycles, especially if outfitted with a stretcher, can make a difference for those living with HIV and AIDS in Malawi.

If a person living with HIV and AIDS needs medical attention and is unable to walk, getting to the clinic can be very difficult. The bicycle ambulance addresses this problem. A lightweight trailer and a removable stretcher are attached to a bicycle, enabling bed-ridden or injured people to be safely transported. The relatively simple design enables the trailers and stretchers to be made locally with available materials.
