Hope everyone is well in this year of the Covid Virus. My apologies for those of you who haven't had a reply from us in so so long. We shall endeavour to do better in the future.
We have just been discussing whether or not we can carry the mission on for our twelfth container. Yes 12! And the answer is we are going to try and give it a go for this fall! Our partners indicate there is still an overwhelming need for mobility in rural Africa and that bicycle donations seem to have fallen off. So we will give it a try!
Interesting times indeed- I think many many bikes in Greater Victoria have been dusted off and are being ridden here. This is great news- always better to ride them here than ship them halfway around the world.
If you do find yourself with a surplus bike drop us a line or even better yet drop it off.
Brentwood Auto and Metal is still accepting bikes for us- Monday through Friday 8:00- 4:30.
Additionally Recyclistas on Crease Avenue. has new "Covid Hours" starting June 4th. They will be open Thursday-Through Sunday 10 am- 6pm. They will accept the bike. Hang a B4H tag on it!
Lastly I will leave you with some photos taken in Malawi this spring. Asama Canada generously donated a huge load of parts and components to Zomba Malawi and we were thrilled to do the loading and shipping.
Stay Safe. John
