Back at It! B4H Victoria is now actively collecting good used bikes and spare parts for our 9TH container load for Africa. Do you have a spare bike gathering dust out in the garage? Why not help empower some of the world’s poorest people by donating it. Drop it off at our residence, 847 Royal oak ave, or give us a call and we will arrange pickup. Special thanks goes out to Organizers and particip[ants of the recent tweed Ride, Victoria, plus all those who have donated bikes and time in loading those 8 containers to date. Through your help and generosity some 3500 bikes have been given a new lease on life, Empowering people in Namibia, Malawi and Uganda. Something as simple as a bicycle greatly improves their transportation needs be it to get to school, work, water, health care or to the local store.
