The WACO System’s charity partner, Transaid, has launched two programmes this quarter in Mozambique and Uganda as well as training 238 bicycle ambulance riders in Covid-19 safety across Zambia.
Transaid’s work across sub-Saharan Africa is pivotal to improving working conditions for those on the front line of logistics and supply chains, as well as developing rural communities.
Last year over 12,000 children and pregnant women were transported to healthcare facilities in Zambia and Madagascar through Transaid’s programmes and donations, whilst Transaid-funded HGV driver training in Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia has given a boost to supply chain capabilities and opened career options for many.
Nearly one million people have been reached in the third phase of the Mobilizing Access to Maternal Health Services in Zambia (MAMaZ) Against Malaria Programme which is driven by Transaid.
Transaid’s Cycle Malawi 2022
Spaces on Transaid’s Cycle Malawi 2022 challenge are filling up fast, but there is still time for WACO members to sign up.
Take part in an unforgettable adventure across southern Malawi, contribute to an incredible cause, and enjoy real camaraderie with a like-minded group whilst riding from Senga, to Mulanje.
The route will visit Lake Malawi, Mount Mulanje, Liwonde National Park, and the Zomba Plateau. The ride will cover some long distances and challenging climbs, but breath-taking African sunsets and unique wildlife will keep you fuelled.
Transaid’s cycle challenges are known throughout the transport and logistics industry, with many supporters keen to get back on their bikes for this October event after Covid restrictions delayed recent plans. It will mark Transaid’s 10th African cycle challenge and entries are welcomed from both individuals and teams, so why not get in the saddle and help transform lives through transport?
Those signing up to Cycle Malawi 2022 will be asked to pay a £349 registration fee and commit to raising a minimum of £3,800 for Transaid.
