Previously, Rides of Shaam raised funds for Revive in 2019 when they rode from Amsterdam to Berlin, supporting our Orphan project in Yemen and Emergency appeal in Syria and had a fantastic impact with the funds they raised! This year, we hope a combined focus on sustainability and providing refugees with a long-term pathway our of poverty will enable their impact to continue long beyond their ride if 2022! Stay posted for their activities this year.
