MURIEL THE MEDICYCLE

$320 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 3 months
Created November 21, 2018
During my recent campaign called "A BRIDGE TO FAR" I rode my motorcycle Peggy, 25,000kms through the far north of Australia and the entire coast and red centre....To raise money for soldiers suffering from PTSD,,, www.gofundme.com/a-bridge-to-far34751466_1542850133387924_r.jpeg

On this long challenging 3 month solo journey I was to meet many Aboriginal communities and their elders,,,I was totally shocked by the disease and injuries these people were living with, and even more saddened by the fact they are Australia's forgotten people with little in the way of aid or medicines to improve their 1700s living conditions.....

I saw with my own eyes LEPROSY, SYPHILIS, TOXOCARA BLINDNESS, CATARACTS, AMPUTATIONS, DIABETES, DENTAL DISEASE, KIDNEY DISEASE  the list goes on,,,,,from my observations of several months, little is being done to actually help,,,just lots of words from inept uncaring Governments,,,,

I intend to fully equip a motorcycle ambulance with first aid and medical supplies,,,returning to the far North in August 2019,,I am a highly qualified and competent COMBAT MEDIC and have dealt with these conditions many times in my military career..

I also intend to fully photograph and document what I see and treat bringing the results back and educating an ill informed public...We can continue to ignore the fact AUSTRALIAN children are dying in our own country, or like me we can actually do something without being hamstrung by political agendas34751466_1542848930407468_r.jpeg

Another year begins, I would like to thank all of those who supported Peggy and I, During Operation "A BRIDGE TO FAR" and those who donated. Now I will be making a concerted effort along with a Planning Group to ensure that Muriel the Medicycle come to fruition and that we return to the far north of Australia in August 2019 and deliver First Aid and Basic Health care to very remote communities. To facilitate this will will again be looking for donations, additionally the planning group will be looking for a major sponsor and seed funding to get the project up and running over the next 5 years.

Now is the time to help, you can donate, you can share this post, you can tell your friends, any small thing will help, we are determined to see this worthwhile venture take place, please help where you can
