Adventure News: Having successfully traversed the Sahara, our scooters team now make their way onto Youtube!
If you have read any of my bi-annual newsletters since 2007, you will no doubt have heard of the ‘Scooters in the Sahara’ project. Filmed over the course of one such expedition, the video above gives a great little insight into the trials and tribulations involved in crossing this challenging part of North Africa. More importantly though, it demonstrates just how vital these pizza delivery scooters have become in helping Bansang Hospital reach out to otherwise inaccessible communities throughout Gambia.
My warmest thanks and appreciation go out to all of the teams that have undertaken this journey. You have all seen the hospital that lies at the end of that dusty, long road…and you can be quite assured that gifting such scooters has made a tremendous contribution to its ability to deliver care to those that need it most.
A feature length documentary about this journey is being produced as we speak; so with luck on our side, you may just be watching the whole saga on a television set in the near future!
