The Ferndale Police Department recently donated unclaimed bicycles to children in Kigali, Rwanda where they will be used to set up a bicycle shop and provide transportation to the community.
This program, a branch of Bicycles for Humanity, is organized by Terry Mahoney. “The people over there need bicycles desperately. This allows children to get to school, and doctors to get to appointments,” said Mahoney.
The bicycles which would have traditionally been surplused and disposed of by the police department, will be shipped to Rwanda in a shipping container provided by Blaine company Kam-Way Transportation.
