« on: March 20, 2019, 07:19:06 pm »
Please move to a better place if necessary.  Iím editor of XLADV (big bike forum) and volunteer with Motorrad Angels.  Iím currently helping in Colombia some Venezuelan refugees.  We are in need of riders who are able to help with cyclone Idai relief efforts in Mozambique and Zimbabwe.  Please contact ben@motorradangels.org if you can help. 

If you ride a moto and like to help people then you are a Motorrad Angel.

We are teaming with World Kitchen and Global Empowerment Mission.

I think choppers will be a better option, most roads in the flooded area are impassible at present. :eek7:

Apologies for hijacking the post but on the same topic...

My girlfriend is collecting goods (medicine, food etc.) to be sent to Mozambique on Wednesday morning to assist with relief efforts. 

If anyone is in Northern JHB and can drop off goods, or arrange for us to collect - please let me know.
So far we have collected and bought a lot of things: maize meal, canned food, dry food, soap, plastic crockery and other miscelanous items.

The lady arranging this is working with Mozambique relief coalition and pro-vision (two organisations in Mozambique), we would be happy to put you in contact with her if you can offer assistance in other ways.
