When faced with the challenge of reaching people in remote communities sometimes the best option is also low-tech. Here’s how the Red Cross is delivering healthcare in South Sudan, with the help of bicycles.
The Red Cross is extremely concerned about the urgent health needs in South Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced from their homes by an increase in armed violence in the past several weeks. According to the United Nations, over 700,000 people have been displaced in South Sudan, with an additional 220,000 leaving the country as refugees.
Local Red Cross volunteers are working to support the needs of vulnerable communities. These activities include providing emergency first aid and delivering much-needed supplies like food and water.
