Chairman calls for support.

Transaid's new chairman wants transport and logistics firms to play a "more active role" to support the charity's aims.  Graeme McFaull thinks more can be done to cut the number of road deaths in Africa and improve transport links to medical care for women and children.  "The industry has a responsibility to take action," he says.  He wants to ensure that the industry is doing "all in its power" to help Transaid projects in Africa.  The charity helps with bus and ambulance driver training and an Emergency Transport Scheme to encourage taxi drivers give free rides for take pregnant women, taking them from their villages to the nearest health centre.
