Riders for Health featured in the Times Appeal

Throughout December, the Times will feature inspirational stories and photos from our work in Zambia, The Gambia and Lesotho.
In the paper today Imre Karacs introduces Majai Ceesay, a proud mother of nine healthy children from the Gambia. But when Majai went into labour with twins in June, something went horribly wrong. She was bleeding heavily and dehydrated; she had no energy left to deliver her second child.
Luckily help arrived on two-wheels. Sheriff Darboe, a community health worker employed by the government, gave her an oral rehydration solution, pain killers and sugar lumps for energy.
‘I can honestly say that without Sheriff, I and my second twin wouldn’t be alive,’ expressed Majai.
Since Sheriff was mobilised with a Riders for Health motorcycle four years ago he is now able to cover up to 100 miles visiting many more remote communities like Majai’s.
The appeal marks five years since Riders for Health was first featured in the Times Appeal, and we are pleased to be able to show the world just what we have achieved, with your support, in that time. You can find out more about our work, on our new look website: www.riders.org, where you can make a donation to our appeal.
