Rise with World Bicycle Relief to Mobilize Frontline Health Workers


World Bicycle Relief (WBR) urgently needs to mobilize 2,500 rural frontline health workers. Every $147 they raise will provide a life-changing bicycle.

World Bicycle Relief combines impactful nonprofit programs with social enterprise sales to meet the staggering need for reliable, accessible transportation in developing countries. WBR has been working diligently, in partnership with organizations on the ground, to see how they can help with the current crisis. They recognize the impact of the pandemic could be devastating for the communities they serve in remote places around the world. Mobilizing frontline healthcare workers in these countries is so important right now, which is why they are working to distribute 2,500 bicycles for healthcare workers in rural communities. They are quickly ramping up these efforts. You can support them by sharing their urgent mission with your community and joining the WBR team on Climate Rise. WBR team captain Claire Geiger told us “I feel a sense of hope as we move forward with this and believe that this may be some of the most important work we do.”
