First shipment of bikes for 2013 on its' way to Ghana 10th January
The new year has got off to a great start with 420 bikes loaded over 4 days that left Felixstowe on 17th January to arrive in Tema Port on 6th February. Many thanks to all who donated bikes and to our volunteers who helped with preparing the bikes for shipment and with the loading.
The bikes are for our partner The Village Bicycle Project and will be used for their projects in rural Ghana. Their Field Worker, Jason was in the UK over Christmas and came to visit us in Colchester at the end of December. Our volunteers were pleased to hear some of his many stories of life in Ghana and of the great impact that bicycles have in improving peoples lives.
We have shipments upcoming for Malawi, Zambia and South Africa that will be shipped as soon as we have enough bikes so please, keep them coming.
