More information about the Motorcycle Outreach:
MoR was established 10 years ago as a result of the actions of Simon Millward, a motorcyclist who spent 5 years travelling around the world. Following his untimely death in 2005, Simon’s friends and family continued his work by formally establishing Motorcycle Outreach: Run by volunteers, MoR helps governmental and non-governmental organisations to provide health care in rural areas. They have a successful track record in Indonesia where they have been supporting a project for 10 years. People in rural areas struggle to access health care and motorbikes are the ideal way to get health care professionals to towns and villages, often over challenging terrain. As well as improving maternal and infant mortality rates, they can provide health care information and advice, provide vaccinations and detect other health issues early. As well as providing bikes, MoR establishes a ‘Zero Breakdown System’, ensuring that the projects are sustainable, the bikes are well cared for and regularly serviced.
