Help save lives in Africa this Christmas with Riders for Health

Help save lives in Africa this Christmas with Riders for Health

MotoGP’s official charity, Riders for Health, has started its Christmas gift scheme.

The festive period is just around the corner, and this year you can help save lives in Africa with Riders for Health, the official charity of MotoGP, by sending one of their Christmas gifts to a friend or relative.

With a Christmas gift you can help Riders for Health use reliable motorcycles to get health workers in Africa on the road, so they can deliver regular, lifesaving health care to even the most isolated villages.

Riders for Health also have a catalogue of virtual gifts that you can send this Christmas. By choosing to send a gift donation you can help provide a health worker with protective clothing so that they can ride their motorcycle safely, or a set of tools so they can carry out the daily maintenance which will mean their motorcycle never breaks down and they will never miss an appointment.

Just £10 could provide two weeks fuel for a health worker, which will let them cover 300km and provide health care to hundreds of families. £55 could provide a day’s training in safe riding and maintenance for a health worker, so they can deliver health services on a regular basis to even the most remote communities.

Each gift comes with a card illustrating your purchase and explaining how it is helping to save lives. You will also receive a Riders Christmas card that you can personalise and send to the recipient. You can find out more at www.riders.org.

You can also support Riders’ work in Africa by ordering Riders for Health Christmas cards on our online shop. Click here to see the range. These cards are a great way of raising awareness of how motorcycles are saving lives in Africa. And, importantly, all the money made from these cards will go directly to support Riders for Health’s work in Africa.
