Wheelchairs For Kids

From humble beginnings in 1998, The Wheelchair For Kids volunteer work force has grown to more than 100 workers. They are made up of a group of retired volunteers in Western, Australia who use your donations to make and distribute up to 300 wheelchairs per month to poor disabled children in developing countries. Millions of wheelchairs are needed and everyone makes a difference. They machine, assemble, control the quality, box the wheelchair components and load the boxes into sea containers.  Other volunteers make cushion covers, rugs and knitted toys to accompany the finished products.

For $200 you can give a child the freedom of mobility.
