Dinner meeting With Russell Hayes from Wheelchairs For Kids
Approximately 340 wheelchairs are produced every month (approximately 3550 per year) and they are then subsequently distributed world wide to these needy children.
These wheelchairs are locally designed specifically to conform with WHO guidelines. They are built specially for rough terrain, adjustable for the child’s size, with postural supports, head rest, harness, a waterproof cushion, tray, tool kit, plus a knee rug, and a knitted toy.
On delivery of the chairs to the receiving sites, agency and hospital personnel, therapists and individuals are involved in providing therapy in the field to ensure each ‘chair is correctly adjusted and fitted to the receiving child to ensure they are comfortable in their new chair.
For every $200 donated in support of the WFK program, a child gains a new wheelchair giving him or her this new experience of freedom of mobility for the first time in their life, and often easing the burden for personal carers.
