Our partner organisation FABIO in Uganda, is executing a health project in conjunction with ITDP Europe. This project comprises both motor and bicycle ambulances, whereby Cycling out of Poverty funded the bicycle ambulances part. One year ago the project started, and recently ITDP made an evaluation of the progress. The evaluation report can be acquired upon request via email to luuk@cyclingoutofpoverty.com. The report shows that the the ambulances save lives, especially those of women in labour on their way to the hospital. A challenge in the project is the community contribution, dispite the agreement upfront the community is not willing to pay for the ambulances. The evaluation is very useful in discussing the way forward and the next steps in the project. A follow up project is planned to start in March 2010. Click here to go to the project page.
