The aim of the project is to support volunteers during the campaign to help Ukrainian refugees.

To help refugees from the war in Ukraine, the association "City for People" launched a bicycle donation campaign, which was responded to by many Latvian citizens. The donated bicycles are repaired and put into working order by the organisation's volunteers.
The project will include 10 bicycle maintenance workshops and bicycle distribution events for Ukrainian refugees. Volunteers will also be involved in these events. Volunteers will also be the ones who will go to several bicycle donation points to pick up the bicycles and deliver them to the workshops. It is expected that the project will attract around 50-60 people to volunteer in all activities.
Attracting, coordinating and supporting volunteers is a challenge for an organisation that has not carried out activities of this kind on such a large scale in such a short time.

The implementation of the project activities will improve the involvement of the members as well as new volunteers in the work of the association. It will bring together volunteers by engaging in common civic activities of how refugees can move around the city on bicycles, an environmentally and nature-friendly form of mobility.
