550 Wheelchairs arrived in Vietnam this week!

According to a study done in 2000, 1.3 million people are living with a disability in Vietnam –35% of which are living with a physical disability?

87% of the 1.3 million are living in rural areas — giving them less access to food, water, transportation, health care etc.

On top of that staggering statistic -63% of the disabled in rural areas are of working age — but unable to work.

The MAIN cause of motor disability in the rural areas are from illness or disease (35%)

 

Thank you for changing lives through the gift of mobility and helping us give 550 wheelchairs to Vietnam this week.
