Rachel Morley, representing BIFA as Deputy National Chair, was invited to attend the Annual Transaid Showcase 2019, held at Ashurst, in London. The event set to highlight the improvements and contributions Transaid has created to help overcome the transport challenges in economically developing countries. Rachel had the honour and privilege to meet the HRH The Princess Royal, who was there as Patron to receive a cheque on behalf of the charity for £75,000.
The cheque was a donation from UKWA and the Annual Showcase is a thank you to all of the contributors from across the transport and logistics industry.
The number of people dying on the road each year in sub-Saharan Africa is third only to deaths from malaria and HIV/AIDS. We have the ability to reduce that figure through road safety projects, but there simply aren’t that many organisations attempting to do so in the way that Transaid can. The extraordinary support the transport and logistics industry has shown to Transaid, and the way the organisation works, demonstrates the huge value of professional driver training.

The Transaid ethos
Every driver should be able to leave for a day’s work without the fear they may not come home because of a lack of training, or dangerous vehicles and roads. Every family should be able to access vital healthcare; nobody should be left behind.
