Enduro Africa
 
 
 
Enduro Africa:

In November 2007, myself and around eighty others, raised money to take motorcycles through South Africa, delivering them to health workers who could then use them to provide healthcare in remote villages.

I'd like to use this space to tell you why we did this and to give exposure to a fantastic cause. (10% of every purchase made by you I give to this charity.)



What is it? - Enduro Africa is a unique and challenging motorcycle adventure in aid of 3 amazing causes - UNICEF, Sentebale – The Prince's Fund for Lesotho and the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.

Motorcycle adventurers from all over the world tackle days of dusty and demanding riding through some of South Africa's most rugged and isolated terrain – the famous Wild Coast.
 

  Why? - On the vast continent of Africa, there's little or no reliable transportation. The vehicles that do exist are often unreliable in the extreme.

The issue hit hardest by this chronic and desperate situation is the delivery of health care. Men, women and children are dying of easily preventable diseases, simply because they cannot be reached.

As an example, bubonic plague is still endemic in Africa, even though all that is needed to cure it is flea powder. It is still rife because there is no means of transport to distribute this simple cure.

Why motorbikes? - It's possible to buy 12 motorcycles for the price of just one Land Rover. The cost for maintenance is very small, they travel for miles on a thimble full of petrol and they can easily get where it's sometimes impossible for other vehicles to access.

Motorcycles have proven so successful the charity has grown from strength to strength since the mid nineties.
