Baby-on-a-bike - 5000km, 5 countries - 1 NSW family's adventure to help mums and children in need

5000 kms from Barcelona to the Baltic on a bike is a challenge alright! But what about tackling the adventure with a two-year-old in tow?  That is exactly what Michael and Shoshanna Hindmarsh from Sydney have just completed over the past 3+ months to help raise funds for Clinica Verde!

Clinica Verde provides pre- and post-natal care for mothers and children in a remote area of rural Nicaragua (where 25% of children are chronically malnourished). It is the sort of support that those of us in developed countries may easily take for granted.

And so the long hard road of rebuilding communities begins...

At our AGM on 10 January 2014, the proposed new governance model and corresponding Constitution were successfully approved and Meal-a-Day has since successfully become a registered charity with the Australian government.
