A big thank you from Lebanon on Wheels and update on Toufic, Abbas, Mkhayel and Abbas !

Dear friends,

We are delighted to send you a much overdue update on Abbas, Mkhayel, Ahmad and Toufic. Thanks to your kind donations, the boys are able to continue going to school and they are having a great time.

The fantastic news is that the boys now have the schooling that they deserve guaranteed for at least the next three (three!) years, until 2022. They are going to school and are greatly enjoying themselves.

Here are some pictures of the boys:

Toufic juggling puzzles and balls.

Abbas making it all look easy.

The boys, looking great. (From left to right Abbas, Toufic, Ahmad and Mkhayel).

Toufic and Ahmad hard at work.

We’re also delighted to tell you that Antoine, Luke, John and Aloys’ epic was the most successful Lebanon on Wheels to date. They cycled a combined 5,879 km and raised a massive $20,466. If you haven’t already seen it, here is the video of their exploits: https://vimeo.com/297941409



You can also read accounts of John and Aloys’ travels here https://bit.ly/2TMzEX1and Luke and Antoine’s here https://bit.ly/2FngOgd.

None of this would have been possible without your help so we’re heavily indebted to every kind donation, bed and thought that you’ve sent in our direction over and since the summer.

We’re also delighted to tell you that this summer, Lebanon on Wheels IV will be going ahead with four cyclists already raring to go. More on that note to follow very soon.

In the future we will keep you updated on how the classes are developing and how Abbas, Ahmed, Mkhayel and Toufic are doing. Until then, thank you once again for all your help.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Auguste
