Pedal Powered Ambulances

Imagine having only one ambulance to serve 400,000 people. These ambulances in Mozambique are not fast high tech equipped ambulances either, but more like carts with a canopy over top pulled by bicycles and by the looks of it, not over the smoothest terrain. We have much to be thankful for here in Canada.

Thanks to funding by the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) through the Anglican Church of Canada and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), there will be 100 more bike ambulances in Mozambique. These two agencies are contributing over $10 million to fund bike ambulances and other projects directed at mothers and children in villages of Burundi, Mozambique and Tanzania.
