Bike tour of 2016.
The bike tour is done every three years to raise money for Jimma hospital Orthopaedic centre. For
every kilometre travelled, the cyclist will donate a certain amount towards the foundation. We have
had two tours, one in 2012 and 2016 respectively. The tour is limited to 30 cyclists from Switzerland,
and the next tour dates are yet to be announced.
The POC -Prosthetics and Ortho centre also produces implants and other prosthetics for patients
requiring assistance with deformities and other conditions. The foundation also supports the centre
through technical expertise and equipment required in the production of prosthetics.

arriving before the end of year. See below
