Republic Day 2020: Orphan children to get 20 recycled cycles

Hyderabad: It is a common sight to notice a lot of Kids Cycles left in the parking place unused as kids have grown up. They occupy so much valuable parking space. So residents/owners can give The Old Cycle a Fresh Lease of Life through “Wheels Desire Foundation (wdf)”. WDF is the NGO where abandoned bicycles die – and be reborn as new ones. Discarded bikes get  a second chance at life, thanks to its recycling project, which refits cycles for donation.

This Republic Day. an NGO “Wheels Desire Foundation”, will donate 20 Bicycles to Children of an Orphanage, a Govt School and an NGO. Five Cycles will be donated to Masjid Banda ZPHS School Children. Another 15 will be donated to the Janma Foundation.

Parents of these children can’t afford to buy them new cycles? Why cant we make use of abandoned bicycles for the convenience of underprivileged kids, whose families can’t afford to buy them new bicycles.

Mr. P. Raghuveer, The Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Telangana State Forest Department Corporation, a Senior Official from Ecotourism from the same organization and Mr. A Venkateshwarlu, IPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Madhapur, Cyberabad will grace the WDF Cycles Donating Event 2020, disclosed Eswar Prasad Pilla, General Secretary of Wheels Desire Foundation in a press note issued here in the city today. The function will be held at Botanical Garden Park at 7 am on Sunday the morning of Republic Day. Nearly 100 people are expected to grace the occasion.

Recycling is the buzz word of today.  Bicycle recycling must happen in every city.  Don’t Throw Your Old Bicycle in the Trash, Eswar asks public

The mission of WDF, according to its General Secretary, Eswar Prasad Pilla, is to make affordable, good quality used bicycles available to low-income people in developing areas. These donated bicycles provide better transport for work, education and also ensures the fitness and keep them healthy. They are environmentally friendly.

A lot of cycles are languishing unused and rusty in thousands of homes and apartments. If repaired well, they could be used again. Otherwise then end up in a scrap. It makes so many senses to recycle them, adds Eswar.

Our mission is to bring cycle back from the graveyard to gullies.

Wheels Desire Foundation is supported by Dr. Cycle, a Hyderabad based start-up for doorstep cycle service. Dr. Cycle Truck picks up the cycles and takes them to Cycle Zone, where they are serviced and them brings them to the earmarked areas for distribution.
