Who gets the wheelchairs?
We mainly fund wheelchairs in South Africa, where people who cannot afford a wheelchair can apply to Bread Tags for Wheelchairs there and get in the queue for a basic wheelchair. There is nowhere near the level of funding for disability services in South Africa as there is in Australia, so someone who cannot afford to buy their own wheelchair may not be able to get one at all.
Since mid-2021 we have had sufficient funds through recycling and donations to spread our focus wider. We now also fund wheelchairs for children in other countries through collaboration with Wheelchairs for Kids in WA. See our Gallery and News pages for details.
