Ride to Provide 2020 - Mekong resources Covering 800km over 8 days of riding, the North Ride starts off in Nong Khai in Thailand’s north-east and follows the incredibly bio-diverse Mekong River for six days before heading west through villages and rural communities not often visited by foreigners. Riders will arrive into Home Hug in Yasothon at the end of the eighth ride day to be greeted excitedly by the children they have been raising funds for all year. Show your support for these amazing people by sponsoring them in their quest to ride and raise money for Hands Across the Water. Funds raised contribute to food, education, healthcare and a loving home for children in need throughout Thailand. Every dollar counts and Hands has deductible gift recipient (DGR) status with the Australian Tax Office. Importantly, 100% of the sponsorship dollars donated go directly to the Thai children and their communities – Hands does not spend any donors’ money on administration.
