Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada
River Cruise & Supper - July 2013
In February, 2008, the 722 Breakfast Club purchased 50 bicycles and gave them to minority children in Vietnam. These children live in rural areas of the country. Before receiving the bicycles, it took them about 1.5 hours each direction to walk to school and home every day. If not for the bicycles, most would not continue attending school because of the distance. The parents of many children told of how their child was unable to sleep the night before as they were so excited to receive their first bicycle. It would be one of the most valuable assets owned by the family. The slide show on this link begins by showing the bicycles being unloaded and presented. It ends with the names and signatures of each child who received a bicycle along with their year of birth ("nam sinh") in the column for boy ("nam") or girl ("nu"), the name of their village and lastly their grade at school ("lop")(i.e. grade "6"). It all took place in a small town outside of Nha Trang, Vietnam. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
