I'm volunteering my time for an important expedition seeking to provide much-needed improvements to healthcare in rural areas of Myanmar, and to raise money for the leading UK architectural aid charity Article 25. 
Taking place over 14 days in November 2017, the expedition aims to raise over £100,000.  The journey will include 500 miles of cycling around the country from Yangon to Mandalay and back, passing via Yangon General Hospital, which is the site of the charity’s biggest project.

I'm joining the trip to assist with research of healthcare provision in remote communities, and to help find sustainable design solutions through collaborative work with local people. 

Your donation will go directly to Article 25 to help fund its essential future work in improving healthcare for local people in Myanmar.

Thank you so much for your support - it is very much appreciated!

Cycle Expedition Myanmar

Article 25 is organising a cycling expedition in Myanmar to carry out field research on Myanmar’s healthcare system, local architecture and building techniques; build local capacity and knowledge and raise funds for the charity.
Around 20 riders including engineers, architects, journalists and medical professionals in collaboration with Burmese professionals will go on the expedition in November 2017.
They will cycle 500 miles in 10 days around the country from Yangon to Mandalay and back.The combination of fundraising and carrying out valuable research makes this project unique and supports the development of the healthcare infrastructure in a country that is emerging from more than fifty years of military rule.
