Bikes for refugees

Bikes for refugees

Bike Auckland

Refugees As Survivors NZ is the lead mental health agency for all incoming United Nations quota refugees entering New Zealand, under international humanitarian conventions.

RASNZ has been recycling old bikes and sending them off to refugee families. Almost one hundred bikes have been fixed up and given to refugees in Auckland since the project began. The programme has provided  much needed mobility to refugees settling into a new life in NZ and was recently profiled on National Radio. Click the link below to listen:

We previously encouraged you to donate bikes to RASNZ – so if you are interested in helping, have a look at the information over on this earlier blog post.
