More donations for RAMP! (Rotary Aiding Mobility Program)

Word of the wonderful recycled & 'pre-loved' mobility equipment being donated to and by Rotary is spreading! Today former Rotarian (Past President of Rotary Doncaster & long time Doncaster jeweller and watchmaker) David East found out about RAMP and has donated a special set of crutches designed for a limbless person.

If a suitable client can be found in Melbourne then RAMP will provide them free of charge, if not, chances are they'll be shipped overseas with wheelchairs, walkers, over toilet seats and hospital equipment to one of the many countries that benefit from the treasure trove of recycled equipment from Rotary's Donations in Kind warehouse in Footscray. 

If you have unused mobility aids, please contact our RAMP rep, Susie, on 0414 907 263 to arrange pick up. If you have a client who would struggle to afford to buy or hire mobility aids, maybe RAMP can help.
