London has a rich history as a refuge for persecuted peoples, and that looks set to continue with Britain’s decision to accept increased numbers in light of the current refugee crisis. But the process of seeking asylum in the UK is a long one, during which time refugees are not able to work, and are instead given GBP 36 per week and provided with temporary housing often on the outskirts of the city. Public transport in the capital is prohibitively expensive, so The Bike Project is a charitable initiative that aims to provide refugees with second hand bicycles, as well as training them up with the skills to fix and maintain them.
