The Bike Project reuses second-hand bikes, repairs them and gives them to people who are fleeing their countries of origin. Every year, 13,500 asylum seekers arrive in the British capital. 27,500 bikes are abandoned during the same time period.
Over half of them have been forced from their homes by conflicts and threats. The report recalls that a large number of children are seeking a better quality of life and improved social and economic conditions out of their homes.
