50 SECOND CHARITY : Primary healthcare services in poor rural areas - Health delivery needs reliable transport - Small economical motorcycles are best - No breakdowns with special service strategy - Capable, cheap, reliable & safe - African results: delivery improved 400%

51 Asian doctors want Africa system They asked me! Millions of bikes in Asia, I saw them Fantastic potential For motorcycles to save lives

52 Extent of Asian use of motorcycles in primary healthcare delivery according to my observations India – midwives Cambodia – 4 medical NGOs

61 Wili Bala (right) is the Director of Health for All. He was Outreach Manager for Doctors Without Borders in West Timor when Simon met him

62 Flores: Medical workers, local children, and the bikes that are the key to their health

63 Quotes from Flores Mr. Dominggus Sarambu, MD, the District Head of Ministry of Health: “The presence of HfA is like an Angel from heaven.” Mr. Wili Bala, Director HfA: “The Program is a breakthrough. It is truly a NEW HEALTH CARE PARADIGM and it is MOTORCYCLES and ALL PARTIES INVOLVED that make it possible. “I have sent tens of copies of our Project Proposals to various donor agencies but responses are disappointing. They are NOT OPEN to NEW INITIATIVES, they are stuck with regular obsolete programs giving no big improvements because the money is lost somewhere else. “We are doing ADVOCACY and DONOR EDUCATION.”

64 Budget Total HfA cost: $150,000 over three years $90,000 spent already on or collected for HfA ($15,000 sent to Doctors Without Borders) Who paid? Motorcycle riders clubs & organizations Businesses Motorcycle manufacturers Individuals Churches, schools International agencies? Nothing YET. But when we can show results…

65 Positive aspects Big potential - millions of mcs, big need, simple solution Qualified staff - from Doctors Without Borders, African trained (Riders for Health Academy), motivated people Value for money – tax deductible in US via Motorcycle Outreach IRS 501c3, no one gets rich, accounts available, all donations used in field Motorbike image - m/cs saving lives, sounds good? Leverage - international development aid agencies

66 How is money raised? Corporates Entitled to logo on motorcycle, link on internet, publicity, $200-$2000+. Individuals Pin badge and email updates, $20-$100+. Choose Doctors Without Borders or Health for All (greatest potential)
