About me

We are passionate about supporting the front line voluntery work that Tearfund achieves. It breaks our hearts to think of 6 years old girls being offered for prostitution in Thailand. The stories of the rescue of children from the clutches of brothel owners turns tears into cheers. Supporting Lord of the Bikes with some significant donnations will wonderfully assist this work.

Chosen charity

tearfund

Tearfund. Cycle for Tearfund and you will be joining a community on the move for freedom! Tearfund is a registered charity committed to the cycling space. Child sex trafficking is a scourge devastating an estimated 4.5 million children and shattering vulnerable communities around the world. This is called modern day slavery due to its scale and growth and it needs all of our attention and action.
Sex slavery generates an estimated US$100 billion for criminal networks every year, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO). By joining Tearfund you will join the fight for freedom helping our full circle approach bringing: prevention/protection, rescue and prosecution and of course restoration and empowerment. Last year our partner Nvader, a 100% Kiwi led team, were responsible for over 50% of Thailand's human trafficking convictions. You'll be supporting an effective team bringing results and changing lives and you'll get to meet Ralph Simpson a Kiwi lawyer who now leads the Nvader team as country director.
