Tell us more , what is the plan ,the route and do you plan to help while travelling , I like the idea and did something similar in SE Asia but they end up using the mosquito net for fishing in some cases , in another trip we also did some distribution of meds and vitamines in Cambodia with a local top doctor which talked their languages and worked for years helping them .

Project Overview

Motivation:
Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies of malaria. According to the World Health Organization, 216 million people suffered from malaria in 2010; 655,000 of them died, and 85 percent of the dead were children under 5 years old. Innocent children are dying of a disease that can be prevented and cured.

Project Description & Objectives:
We will document our experiences meeting malaria patients, health workers and caregivers across Africa in order to increase malaria awareness among young professionals in developed and developing countries. We will use our background in the healthcare industry to help drive innovation, expand mutual knowledge-sharing and help achieve malaria elimination.

Strategy:
We will travel across Africa on a motorcycle, visiting rural villages, health clinics and health organizations. We will contact media channels as we travel to share the lessons learned and to publicize an online platform that enables knowledge-sharing, facilitates research and promotes constructive debate to drive innovation at Research Malaria β€” The hard impact of malaria in Africa

Journey Overview:
The Ride for Malaria starts in January 2013. We will travel across 11 countries in Africa, from Cape Town to Cairo. The trip will last approximately 6 months or more, depending on funding.

Riders:
Salvador Carlucci and Tarciana Caricio grew up in developing countries and were fortunate to advance both academically and professionally overseas. We both have worked in the healthcare industry. We are grateful for the opportunities life has given us and feel compelled to give back to a cause we believe in.

Your Support:
We need hearts, hands and minds to help us in this journey.
β€œAn individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Research Malaria β€” The hard impact of malaria in Africa

We are happy to provide any additional information needed.
Sincerely,
Salvador
