Jeff Powell has enjoyed bicycle mechanics since he was 15. He also likes recycling items, especially seeing them have a new life. Three years ago, he joined his two passions to create a charitable organization: Bikes for Syria.

The Bikes for Syria Project, as outlined on Powell’s Facebook page, restores and recycles bicycles, bicycle parts and other “human-powered transport,” including wheelchairs, so that they can be used again.
