Big wheelchair news today. We have reached a milestone – 40 wheelchairs funded! These lovely messages are from parents in Jordan, where we had provided five wheelchairs through Wheelchairs for Kids:
“On behalf of my son Fouad, I offer sincere thanks and appreciation for those who worked on providing us with a wheelchair that supports his learning needs. The chair has helped him sit in a better and safer which is improving his writing capabilities.” Fouad’s mother.
“Thank you to the Australian Organization ‘Wheel Chairs for Kids’ for providing us with a wheelchair. The chair has positively impacted our son who is now able to sit properly and safely, whether to have meals or write on the table attached to his chair.”
We have now funded a further five wheelchairs through Wheelchairs for Kids, currently under construction in their workshop, and one more in South Africa for a Diabetes Support Group.
Paballo and Yolanda are the latest two recipients of wheelchairs we have funded. Paballo is thirteen years old and lives with cerebral palsy. His Mum was very emotional when his chair arrived. Yolanda lives in aged care in Vredendal in the Western Cape province of South Africa.
BIG NEWS! Due to our supporters’ amazing efforts at collecting bread tags and donating to our charity, we are now able to provide more wheelchairs. In addition to funding wheelchairs in South Africa through Bread tags for Wheelchairs, we are now also collaborating with Wheelchairs for Kids in WA. They build wheelchairs in Perth and ship them to countries around the world. Our first five wheelchairs have gone to children in Jordan.
