Welcome to BIKE SCOUTS PHILIPPINES! We are a 100% volunteer organization of bicycle messengers that was formed as a response to the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. The Bike Scouts gathered survivor data and collected personal messages from survivors that were delivered to relatives who were desperate for news about the missing. BIKE SCOUTS PHILIPPINES is also a project partner of Rappler.com, a social news network where stories inspire community engagement and digitally fuelled actions for social change. The BIKE SCOUTS worked with Rappler to gather information that was posted online through Google and other social media channels.
