Hello everybody, thanks for taking the time to visit our page.
By taking part in the Mongol Charity Rally, we want to support the GO HELP organisation.The Mongol Charity Rally is 100% charitable adventure that begins in London and ends in Ulan Bator, Mongolia (ca 15000km).The rally is designed to be an adventure for the participants, and not a traditional rally/race. There are other differences from mainstream rallies, particularly the fact that no support team is provided and no other arrangements are made such as for accommodation.
Why supporting GO HELP?
- The Ambulance Project
Go Help is the organiser of the Mongolia Charity Rally, Go Help is thus ideally placed to provide a sustainable supply of ambulances to Mongolian hospitals and other health providers, and has previous experience of placing ambulances with healthcare providers. The bulk of the ambulances were previously used by the British National Health Service and other European health services.
According to the latest available figures, there is a shortfall in ambulances of nearly 20 per cent across Mongolia and those that are provided by the government are of wildly varying quality. In addition, there is a great shortage of emergency equipment for each ambulance including respiratory equipment, heart monitors and medicinal supplies as well as tools. Technical equipment that breaks is often not replaced. People are not always suitably trained to use the equipment and there may be lack of maintenance and technical support.Go Help is running a pilot project that aims to provide fully functioning emergency ambulances to supplement those already provided by the health service in Mongolia. The project started in late summer 2011 and involved up to ten ambulances being leased to Mongolian hospitals by Go Help, which retained the responsibility for maintenance and spare parts.
For this challenge, our plan is to ride an used ambulance or if not an utilitary vehicle (depends on the money we find) that will be donated to a local hospital or organisation in Mongolia.
-The Go Help Scholarships programme is aimed at students in Ulaanbaatar, from lower economic backgrounds that were struggling with the increasing tuition fees at universities.
-The child protection programme with save the children. The project goal is to contribute to the development of a child protection system and to building capacity at national and local levels to improve the quality and accessibility of child protection services for poor and marginalized children in Mongolia.
-The Book Ger provides a comfortable reading and community environment for the children and young people in the outlying districts of Ulaanbaatar. It is stocked with children’s books, magazines and games, as well as running activity, homework and reading sessions. The purpose of the Book Ger is to provide children with space to do reading in their spare time and in doing so encourage their interest in books and improve their literacy skills, and in the long term reduce school dropout rates in the ger district community.
-Volunteers, Go Help places skilled volunteers into local organisations. Through their office in Mongolia they know that voluntary skills are much sought after.
- The helmet project was one of Go Help’s first activities in Mongolia.
In 2008 Go Help supplied helmets to child jockeys right across Mongolia, including the winning rider of the biggest Naadam race!
In Mongolia, more than 30,000 child jockeys compete in horse races each year. Children riding horses in races is a popular tradition, but as horse racing has become more and more commercialised, injuries and fatalities have increased drastically – in part because races are now taking place at sub-zero temperatures.
Horses and horse riding are synonymous with nomadic life in Mongolia, and from the days of Chingis Khan conquering all before him, they have been immortalised by Mongolians as a most trusted and loyal friend. In a country where there are still only 100,000 cars registered, the horse still performs a vital mode of transport, as well as the focal point for all Mongolians during the Naadam Festival held in July.
“A Mongolian without a horse is like a bird without wings” – Mongolian Proverb.
