Bracebridge Rotarians & Friends Head to Cambodia January 2012 – Help Fund Bicycles for Needy Children!

Exciting news of our first Rotary Wheels for Learning (RWFL) Rotarians and Friends Trip to Cambodia  to distribute bicycles. RWFL hopes to host yearly bicycle distribution trips to Cambodia where Rotarians can get invovled on the ground.
Linda Brouillette and Michaela Korb of the Rotary Club of Bracebridge, District 7010 have been busy making plans for this 19-day trip that will see bicycles distributed to needy students in four rural districts in Cambodia.
The group of 18 participants will arrive in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on January 4, and together with RWFL field coordinator, Lisa McCoy and her Cambodian volunteers, travel into rural areas to distribute as many bicycles as funding allows.
We’ll be distributing bicycles in rural, impoverished areas with the help of the Cambodian Red Cross, local teachers and members from the newly-chartered Rotary Club of Battambang, Cambodia, District 3350.
We are calling on Rotary Clubs, Rotarians and friends to help us!  We want to distribute as many bikes as we can.   You can provide a student with a Rotary Bicycle for $50. Donations are tax-receiptable in Canada.  Donors will be supplied with a photo and information on their sponsored student taken by our team of Rotarians and Friends.
