Victoria to Malawi with Love

 June 2014, the day our B4H Victoria volunteers  were packing bikes into a container bound for Malawi, a young lady  brought a bike for donation on behalf of her cousin, who had passed away. She wanted to honour her cousin, who loved biking, by sending her bike to Malawi. This week, that bike was donated to Grace. Grace is is a health care worker from Machinga District in Malawi. Grace is responsible for delivering health services to 407 households, over 2000 people. Before receiving this bike, Grace was tasked with visiting these areas by foot, along with taking care of her own needs and family. This bike will now allow Grace to visit the many homes more frequently and help deliver vital care to people living in extremely poor and isolated communities. The simple gift of a bike will impact the lives of thousands of people. We want to thank all those who have contributed and helped people like Grace through our project.  We hope you will join B4H this spring as we gear up to send another 500 bikes to the people of Malawi. Your support will help change lives!

Shipment #7

Things are rolling nicely with Shipment 7. Send your old bike on a life-changing journey by dropping it at Recyclistas or Brentwood Auto and Metal Recycle. (Contact us with questions or if you need a hand)
Special shout out to the Langford Firefighters- We attended their bike auction last week- it was excellent! (and we came home with 23 more bikes)

Still Here!

Still collecting. Brentwood Auto and Recyclistas are still good bets for dropping a bike off. 
We are committed to changing the lives of many more folks by shipping off another load of bikes before summer rolls around. 
I will try and get some recent Malawi photos up here soon.
In the meantime here is a bike I picked up from Brentwood Metal this week. Malawi bound soon! Spread the word!
