A group of cyclists will embark from Spirit Square on Sunday to raise funds for an orphanage in Malawi.

Group cycling for the children of Africa

The focus is to provide a sustainable home for the orphans

Arelene Lihala and group of riders are embarking on a Bike for the Children Tour from Spirit Square in Campbell River to Victoria’s inner harbour Aug 3-4 to support the children at Chikondi One Heart Angels Orphanage in Malawi Africa.

Lihala is the founder of the orphanage which opened in July 2012.  She will be traveling back to Africa at the end of October with a group of volunteers to work directly with the children at the orphanage.

The team of philanthropists volunteer their time to make a positive difference in the lives of the children at Chikondi One Heart Angels Orphanage.

The riders are raising funds for food, health care and education. The focus is to provide a sustainable home for the orphans and our work has been vital for the orphans healthy growth so they can develop their own sense of self and personal hope.  The Malawian children are very simple, they show their appreciation for the smallest of things by their kindness, joy and love.

The vision is to build a home, school, medical centre, church for the children in Blantrye Malawi Africa.  The goal is to purchase the land this year and begin construction, and complete the project in 2 years and provide a home for 100 orphans and build a self sustainable community.

All Pledge amounts are welcome and 100 percent of the funds raised will go directly to the children & project.
