Adsum Bike Aid - Madagascar

Since 2015 The Adsum Foundation has partnered with Belfast based BikeAid Africa. Together we have been collecting, reconditioning and shipping bikes to Madagascar. They are sent to our charity partners in Madagascar, who identify and distribute the bikes to those who would benefit.

Madagascar, with 24 million people, is one of the poorest on earth where 50% of population don't have access to clean and safe water (Water Aid), 92% of the population live on less than $2 a day (World Bank) and it is listed as the 4th worst country in the world for malnutrition (Oxfam).

Water, education and basic healthcare are sparse, particularly in rural communities in Madagascar. Marketplaces, workplaces and other income opportunities can be significant distances away from people’s homes. Weather conditions can make these journeys more burdensome, whether in scorching heat or through the rainy season. Providing locals with a means to reach these essential places, and in a more timely manner, will significantly improve their futures.

We collect bikes from across Northern Ireland, preferably hybrids or mountain bikes for the rough terrain, but accept bikes of all shapes and sizes, as well as parts.

As we get ready to send more bikes to Madagascar, please help us meet the cost of shipping by donating here.

Thank you!
