Why Give a Ship?
Refugees are resettling, and they want to contribute to their families and to the communities around them. Turkey now hosts the world’s largest community of Syrians displaced by ongoing conflict, according to the Migration Policy Institute. Many of these refugees live in impoverished areas, without transportation to get to and from work. We decided to Give a Ship and help resettled refugees get to work by shipping 500 bicycles this summer to refugees in Turkey. We’ve partnered with great groups to collect bikes and bike parts in Boston, and it’s up to us to raise to the funds to send them on their way. It only takes $10 to send one bike, and we’ll be sending them to cities with over 500,000 refugees who need our help. Our little bit can do a lot! Won’t you Give a Ship too?
