MaterCare International is an organization of health professionals who dedicate their time and energy to caring for mothers and children in developing countries. With the purchase of their super stylish new maternity motorcycles in November, this year they’ll be able to reach women in areas that were difficult to access before.
These vehicles are much cheaper to operate and maintain than the 4X4 ambulance but are only for short haul pickups from villages relatively close to the main hospital. They are specially designed motorcycles for transport of pregnant women. One will be brought to Merti and the other will stay around Isiolo. We hope to purchase more in the future when funds become available.
