Join Yamaha as we continue to support Riders for Health in 2023

In 2022, the first year of our three-year partnership with Riders for Health, Yamaha focused on supporting the organisation’s The Gambia programme. The team had an urgent need to replace an ageing fleet of AG100 motorcycles used to provide reliable transport for community health workers delivering care to remote areas.

By the end of the year, Riders for Health, The Gambia could purchase 16 new AG100 bikes with raised funds. With these bikes now on their way to The Gambia, Riders for Health and Yamaha want to thank everybody who took part and made this possible!

About the Riders for Health partnership

In 2022 Yamaha and Riders for Health kicked off a three-year partnership. The aim of this partnership is: to raise awareness and funds to support Riders for Health, a humanitarian organisation that has been making healthcare accessible for remote communities across Africa for over 30 years.

Across sub-Saharan Africa, more than 60% of the population live in rural areas, miles away from essential healthcare centres and with no means of transport.

The organisation supplies and maintains motorcycles to health focused organisations as well as providing rider training for health workers so that they can reliably reach people with life-saving care.

Riders for Health currently operates in The Gambia, Nigeria, Lesotho and Malawi. They have long used Yamaha AG100/200 motorcycles, making the organisation a natural fit for this partnership, as Yamaha looks to live by its ethos of contributing to society and bringing value to people’s lives.

Yamaha supports Riders for Health and their UK-based fundraising arm, Two Wheels for Life, by increasing awareness of their work and helping them in fundraising activities.

Join us now in helping Riders for Health to save lives.
