'New bike for Vi'

Today Vi, who is one of our educational sponsorship programs, received a 'new' secondhand bike.

When Vi was in primary school she just walked a few minutes to school. But now she has moved up to middle school she needs to travel about 10 km to school. She needed a bike to get there easily. A local pagoda kindly gave us one of their old delapidated one. We had it repaired; new wheels, tires, and seat, as well as adding a basket.

She is thrilled as now she can get to school in 30 minutes on the bike. Her family are happy too as they are challenged financially, as dad has cancer and hasn't been able to work for many years now.
