Bicycles Help Survivors of Gender-Based Violence

Thanks to our partners, Reinvention Wheels, Inc. and USAID, we can now provide Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention and treatment services in remote areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).  We have just received a generous donation of 100 bicycles and safety helmets to assist in providing medical, psychological, social, legal, and economic services for GBV survivors.  With the addition of these bicycles, volunteers can now easily provide services in remote areas inaccessible by car.

“We are tremendously grateful to Reinvention Wheels for providing this vital tool in helping us reach even more survivors”, said Jim Campbell, the International Medical Corps’ DRC County Director.
