Transaid’s 2019 Christmas Appeal

Last year’s Christmas Appeal was our most successful yet, beating our £25,000 target by over £4,000 to raise an incredible £29,245. We were humbled at the overwhelmingly positive response shown by both corporate supporters and individuals, and we are so grateful to all those who helped us surpass our fundraising target so spectacularly.

With your support we can make this year’s total even higher and strengthen our ability to transform lives through safe, available, and sustainable transport.

The Appeal

This year we have secured festive double page spreads in ten industry magazines: Motor Transport, Commercial Motor, SHD Logistics, Forwarder, CILT Focus, UKWA Warehouse, RHA Roadway, FTA Logistics, Coach & Bus Week, and Handling & Storage Solutions. As a thank you for your help with the appeal, we would like to offer the opportunity of logo placement for your company in each of our adverts.

You can choose a variety of Christmas Appeal packages which include options for a personalised Christmas e-card design, prominent logo placement options, and social media coverage.

As in previous years, you can choose from a variety of Christmas Appeal publicity packages, which include options for an exclusive personalised Transaid Christmas e-card design, and social media coverage, as well as prominent logo placement options in the above publications.

This year we are once again fortunate enough to have secured match funding, meaning that all donations made by individuals will be doubled. This year is therefore a particularly good time for individuals to support the appeal, as every donation will make even more of a difference.

Why Support The Appeal?

Africa accounts for 93% of malaria deaths worldwide, whilst children under five make up over 60% of all malaria deaths (source: World Health Organisation). Remote rural communities in Africa are at even greater risk as they face additional challenges accessing malaria treatment.

However, alongside our partners, we are empowering rural Zambian communities to tackle malaria head-on through the MAMaZ Against Malaria (MAM) at Scale programme. MAM at Scale is mobilising health workers to help diagnose severe malaria at community level, as well as providing them with rectal artesunate (RAS), a WHO-approved pre-treatment for severe malaria. Once RAS is administered, Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) riders are transporting children with severe malaria to health facilities using bicycle ambulances, where they can receive further treatment to make a full recovery.

After the success of the MAM pilot – which last year recorded a staggering 96% reduction in child mortality from malaria – the programme is now being scaled up to reach 280,000 people in Zambia. Your support will enable us to reach at least 200 communities across five districts with MAM@Scale.

With your help, we can continue to transform even more lives through safe, available, and sustainable transport.
