Lusaka Bicycle Donation Ceremony
Twenty-six more bicycles were donated through the TdA Foundation this afternoon! Special thanks to the riders who helped raise the funds to purchase the wheels through our partnership with Zambikes, a Lusaka-based business dedicated to providing Zambians with reliable bikes and ambulance bike-trailers to assist their communities. Zambikes President Dustin McBride says the shiny yellow bicycles will be a valuable source of transportation for local aid workers. "They'll be used by volunteer community health workers targetting HIV/AIDS patients. With these bikes, staff will be able to visit three times as many patients as they would if they were walking."
Thanks to SAB Miller for sponsoring the event with refreshments. Dustin will be joining the TdA on the road for the next few days. We hope he likes peanut butter!
