Thoughts About The Hero First-Responder Motorcycles Handed Over To Community Health Centers
This is a fantastic initiative by Hero MotoCorp. Most rural areas in India do not have decent medical facilities or medical care, and some even resort to old medication techniques handed down over generations. The first responder motorcycles will bring health facilities closer to these areas.
