Number 9 is Sealed and Enroute to Malawi with Love!


Big Big thanks to everyone that helped load #9.  Hard to believe that the bikes just keep on coming.
Special thanks to Van Isle Containers- without their help this wouldn't happen.   Recyclistas and Brentwood Auto & Metal Recycle keep feeding us with bikes too!

Since 2009 we have shipped 4,039 bikes for a total of 61,207 kilos!!

Sept 2016

Hey everyone- we are back after a summer hiatus.  What a summer it was.

First and foremost a big big thanks to the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition for sponsoring the Victoria Tweed Ride.  $914 was raise for Bicycles for Humanity.  Thank-you to the GVCC and the riders.  Every nickel we raise goes to paying shipping charges to get the bikes to folks that need them.

I guess with support from groups like the GVCC and YOU, we will put container #9 in motion.  If we can get #9 in gear for next spring we will be celebrating about 4,000 bikes shipped to Africa.

Here are a few photos we just received from Zomba Malawi showing #8's arrival.   Take note of the wristband on the headset of the Raleigh in the 3rd pic.  We affix a numbered wristband to each bike as it is loaded to assist with tracking and inventory control.  Thats a bike we loaded in June!

Shipment #8 is sealed.

Wow- thanks to  so many people for helping get our eight shipment underway.  Comox Pacific Express came through with the logistics again and got the container from Deltaport over to the island and return for us.  Thanks so much.

Special shout out to Henry and his team in the "Me-to-We" club at Sir James Douglas School.  To date they have raised over $4,000 to support shipping costs. Incredible.

Here is a pic of the container when it was almost done.  We did squeeze a few more in!

Enjoy the summer everyone.

Still Here! Working on #8

We are still here and looking forward to ramping things up for a spring 2016 Shipment.  The bikes are having a great impact in Malawi and we look forward to shipping our 3500th bike before the summer.  Wow. Thanks for your support!
Here is a video from Malawi, with promises of another to follow.

Shipment #7

CANADA


Wow- when Chris and Linda Wille started this adventure in 2009 who would have forecast we would be shipping our 7th container load for a total of over 3,000 bikes providing mobility in Africa. We hope to be loading #7 sometime between June 9 and 12.
Drop us a line if you want to roll up your sleeves and see the amazing sight of 500 bikes stages for loading.  We would appreciate your help and camaraderie. 

MALAWI!
