    Bodaboda Drivers Provide Care to Injured
    By Aidan Mhando, Mwananchi

    Mwanza -- TRHM, a local agency, has launched a project to train popular bodaboda drivers to provide first aid to injured motorcyclists in the region.

    TRHM Director, Mark Hingi, says he initiated the project due to data showing that many bodaboda operators and passengers are dying for lack of first aid after accidents and injuries.

    Hingi said the project includes the Mwanzan Fire and Rescue Battalion Mwanza, Mwanza City Council and the Emergency Services Call Center at Bugando Medical Center (BMC). Gadafi Masoud, Training and Information Officer of the Mwanza Fire and Rescue Battalion, said their squad handles various functions including rescue and providing services to a range of accidental injuries occurring in the region.
