325 more bicycles have arrived at Tien Sa port in Da Nang. These bicycles were donated by the Kawasaki branch of Japan-Vietnam Friendship Association, an NGO that have sent over 10,000 bikes to school children with disadvantaged background over the past 12 years.

There were 5 volunteers from Hoi An on the 11th April to help upload containers full of bicycles: Genta from Samurai Kitchen, Kanako from Duck Cafe, Kana from Kawasaki with My and Reiko from U Cafe. Once the shipping container was unlocked volunteers and the port workers loaded up trucks waiting to drive the bikes to Danang Union of Friendship Associations (DAFO).

Bikes reassembly work will be done at the DAFO in the following days and will be delivered to schools for children to pick up.

These bikes will be donated to the underprivileged students who have to travel over 10 kms to their school. From the coming week bike delivery ceremony will be held in various districts in Da Nang & in Quang Nam.

I wish the gifted bikes will be fully utilized.
