Ambulance Equipment

I've being researching about Ambulance and reading your blog, I found your post very helpful :) . I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog!


The process of rehabilitating donated bicycles and constructing the bicycle ambulance is a transferable skill and has the potential to provide more sustainable livelihoods for those who help build and maintain these relatively simple and life giving resources. I particulalry admire the local adaptations and design modifications brought forward and incorporated into the project. That's both smart and a more sustainable approach to project design.


Living in a third-world country opens your eyes to the real meaning of poverty. We lived for a couple years in Bolivia and the scene you described in Namibia is almost familiar to me, based on our Bolivian experience. The bicycle ambulances are such a logical thing. I hope they are being used in Bolivia also.

Around here, we bicycle because it's fun, because we can. It's hard to imagine a world where a bike can mean the difference between life and death.
