The Cycle Kosovo for Children in cooperation with Action for Mothers and Children organize the yearly charity cycling tour around Kosovo.


The Cycle Kosovo for Children is a fundraising event, started in 2014, in cooperation with Action for Mothers and Children - AMC. Since then, a group of 40 – 50 cyclists participate in the annual tour, cycling around Kosovo, passing through major cities in the country, including 500 km of cycling and 6,000 meters of climbing. The tour continued in 2015 and 2016, with the same goal, namely raising funds for the Prishtina University Hospital Maternity Unit. Each year, the event was able to raise between 10 and 14 thousand Euros, through corporate sponsorship, individual donations, and end-of-tour event organized in Prishtina. The money was used for the purchase of a Haematology Analyser, UV lamps for baby incubators, and Cardiopulmonary Monitors, which was donated to the Maternity Unit in Prishtina.


Building on the success of 2014-2016, we are organizing another charity cycle event. 


We hope to raise funds for Action for Mothers and Children, which this year will deliver the CRP/CBC equipment to the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit in Peja. To put it simply, this equipment is essential to measure the severity of blood infections in babies, allowing for prompt antibiotic therapy, proper duration of antibiotics, and treatment follow-up by taking baby’s blood right at the incubator. It’s highly efficient; the results are ready in 4 minutes, after a single blood draw. Use of this equipment is expected to improve the efficiency of care provided for our newborns in Peja.


The challenge will be to cycle around Kosovo in three days passing through many of the major cities. The total distance will be over 300 miles (500km) with 5000 meters of climbing starting from Prishtina, through:


Day1 (June 2nd ):  Prishtine- Gjilan-Ferizaj-Prevalle-Prizren-Gjakove

Day2 ( June 3rd ): Gjakove-Valbone (Albania)-Junik-Peje

Day3 (June 4th): Peje-Mitrovice-Bajgore-Podujeve-Prishtine


Our goal is to raise at least 8,000 euros, through a corporate sponsorship, direct donations and an end of event party.  


From  KosovoIdeas, we are asking all kindhearted people to help us raise a part of our goal, a found of 2,000  Euros so we can be able to purchase the CRP analyzer to Peja’s hospital.
