Due to this unfortunate situation, many families were beingforced to carry their disabled relatives everywhere, and many organizationswere not able to properly assist their disabled members which was verystressful for all concerned. We are therefore pleased to help individuals andorganizations in need through our donation of 120 new wheelchairs.”
