200 mobility carts to differently abled children, transforming their lives with dignity and independence. 70+ Million people world wide are leg disabled (WHO)
These gifts of hand-cranked Mobility Carts to these children will be a 'vehicle of a life time' that will allow them to go where ordinary wheelchairs won’t go. There is no cost to the recipient. It will be a gift of mobility and dignity to those in developing countries who are unable to walk. Mobility carts provide much more than mobility; they offer freedom, dignity and self-confidence.
The fund raiser/Appeal:
The Rotary Club of Emory Druid Hills has an appeal for all of us. Our goal is to touch the lives of 1,000 differently-abled. Be a difference-maker and let’s transform the lives together.
