Bicycle Distribution in Sri Lanka

Commitment by

World Bicycle Relief

In 2005, World Bicycle Relief, in partnership with World Vision International committed to provide $1.5 million to source 24,400 bicycles locally in Sri Lanka, thus assisting families living in poverty, or whose lives have been shattered by the Tsunami, to regain economic stability by providing them cheap sustainable mobility.
World Bicycle Relief fulfilled their commitment in July of 2006, successfully raising over $1.5 million from individuals, corporations and foundations as well as working with local manufacturers to provide the best bicycles possible for the end users. They worked with World Vision International to identify families most in need and to monitor the use of the bicycles.
