Weʼve raised £30 to pay for the running costs of a Pikipiki (motorbike) for a year so the community team can visit patients in the remote villages on Zanzibar.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
ZAMHS stands for Zanzibar Mental Health Shamba. Shamba is the Swahili word for countryside.
ZAMHS is a small NGO that aims to support people with mental health problems in the rural areas of Zanzibar.
Like Mid Wales there are areas of Zanzibar that are sparsely populated and a long way from the main centres of population. Like Wales the mental health services in Zanzibar are concentrated in the big towns, and the people who live in the rural parts of the island find it difficult to access services.
We are working with Community Mental Health services in Zanzibar to pay for fuel for transport to far flung areas and medicines to be able to supply to those with Mental Health or Neurological problems who cannot afford to pay for them.
We also raise money to be able to provide much needed equipment such as Pikipiki (motorbikes) so staff can reach the remote areas of the island.
