Bicycles for Humanity update

Bicycles for Humanity Seattle is proud to announce that our first shipment of bicycles has been loaded into a shipping container and is on its way to South Africa. The 451 bicycles will be distributed to students and health care workers to make their journeys easier. The container itself will become a self sustaining business staffed by locals trained and dedicated to the repair of bicycles. As this is a perpetual process we are continuing to collect unused bicycles for inclusion in our next container. The mission and goal for our local orginization is to send two containers each year. We have learned a lot in our first cycle and our process should become easier as we continue. I thought you might like to know that your student Killian is involved and helps us in the collection process as well as the bicycle preparation procedures.

Attached are some pictures of the organization, the container and the tail end of the loading process.

Thanks for your continued support.
