World Bicycle Relief mobilises people through bicycles, turning everyday tasks such as going to school, visiting the clinic and delivering goods to market into less of a struggle. WBR was founded in response to the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004, distributing more than 24,000 bicycles in Sri Lanka. From here, the organisation entered Zambia, providing more than 23,000 bicycles to assist community healthcare workers involved in the AIDS epidemic. This week, it donated 2,400 bicycles to school-going children, teachers and members of the community in Namwala District, as part of a programme to provide a total of 50,000 bicycles to rural pupils. You can help by donating, fundraising or organising an event.
