Malawi Bicycle Donation
The Tour d’Afrique Foundation hit another milestone this afternoon. We celebrated our last full day in Malawi by donating 72 bicycles to three local organizations; sweet new rides that will give NGO staff transportation to reach those who can use their help. This year, 32 bicycles went to Emmanuel International, 20 to Partners in Health, and another 20 to Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief. That brings the total number of bicycles donated through the TdA Foundation to more than 350 for 2010, and more than 1500 bikes since 2003!
Special thanks are in order for Jonny, Noel and Elasto of Africycle, an organization that makes it possible for the TdA Foundation to donate bicycles and give back to the people and communities we cycle through in Malawi. These three awesome dudes joined us in Chitimba and provided tons of support to the tour over the last week. We owe them a huge thanks!
