Run by volunteers; providing the gift of mobility to impoverished communities in developing countries.
CHANGING THE “CYCLE”, ONE LIFE AT A TIME
Mobility is something we take for granted, but a simple thing like a bicycle can make a significant impact in the welfare of an impoverished family. The mobility that the bicycle provides, allows people to travel greater distances in a shorter space of time, alleviating the cost of public transport and the burden of walking these long distances, often with heavy loads to bear. It is an easy, practical solution in bringing change to a family, by helping with the transport of daily necessities such as fetching water and wood for fire, taking children to school or the hospital, taking produce/goods for selling at the local market, etc. These are a few examples of stumbling blocks in the daily life of many poor communities.
Our Namibia branch opened in Tsumeb, in 2010 and is managed by Multisport Africa (MSA), a Non-Profit Organisation, founded in South Africa in 2001, by former South African and Australian World Champion and Multisport athlete, Nigel Reynolds, who himself had to overcome huge obstacles, when his parents were murdered in SA in 1994 during major political upheaval.
Nigel made the decision not to be embittered but to turn things around by walking in forgiveness and serving those in need, especially youth at risk, using sports as a vehicle for change. We have donated over 2000 bicycles to the needy in local areas as well as distributing bicycles to other B4H outpost in Namibia, SA and Botswana, with our dedicated Mercy Truck , and are continually finding creative ways to serve and support our community through various projects.
