Bikes for Africa
The press release says that the organization Bikes Not Bombs is providing bicycles to development workers in Mozambique, as it does in Nicaragua. The press release says South African-backed rebels have been attacking civilians since 1982; Mozambique's president visited the White House in November to ask for continued support against rebel attacks and a drought that threatens one-half of its 13 million people with famine. The press release says Eric Schulman of Bikes Not Bombs is now in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique; both Africare and the American Jewish World Service have issued emergency pleas for humanitarian relief supplies to be sent to Mozambique, and Bikes Not Bombs/Africa is putting out the call for sturdy bicycles to be sent through these organizations to the Ministry of Health.
