ORPHANS ON WHEEL PROJECT

 Support RUDEC’s
 ‘Wheels for Orphans Project’

RUDEC supports orphans in the hilly district of the Belo region. Fieldworkers provide orphans with emotional support, health checks, medicines and books but they have to walk up to three hours to reach them. Motorbikes are the only effective means of transport to visit the orphans on a regular basis.

Here is a typical story…
Quiline & Christel









Christel and Quiline are 12 and 13 years old. They lost their parents through TB/AIDs and now lives with other orphans in Anyajua, a village three hours walk from RUDEC. A typical community comprises 1 – 5 orphans who live with a dedicated foster aunt or grandmother. The children are often lacking good health, and many had a traumatic start in life or neglected. Clinton relies on RUDEC to pay school fees and supply medicines, glasses and clothes. Local schools also require education materials. Using motorbikes we could reach Christel and Quiline on a regular basis and provide the necessary support he and 55 other orphans need.

The project seeks to be self-sustaining through bike hire as we shall put them on the roads as a means to help local people with transport and also run our projects activities. Riders would be ready at all times to get kids to the hospital as the needs arise. We shall provide a general community support as these would be emergency support services provided by RUDEC.

With two motorbikes and additional funds we could:

·        Support fieldworkers to visit orphans on a regular basis
·        Pay orphans tuition fees, books, glasses and clothes
·        Reach many more orphans in surrounding villages
·        Support schools to educate the orphans
