Wheelchair Angels International is a nonprofit organization that distributes custom adapted wheelchairs and clinical assistive devices (gait trainers, standers, etc) to children and adults in the Middle East, free of charge. We are a group of christian friends that felt a call to intervene in the dramatic situation lived by families with handicap children. Every year, in Montana (USA), we collect used and new wheelchairs and medical assistive devices, put them in shipping containers and send them to the West Bank, where the chairs are custom adapted to the individual needs of each person in need, by our team of experienced professionals, and given to them free of charge. The only criteria we use for when we give aid is need. Since 2009 we have custom adapted and distributed 3,700 wheelchairs in the West Bank, Jordan, Egypt and Kurdistan, touching the lives of thousands of people. Your contributions are what has made this possible.
The goal of this campaign is to raise funds to ship another container with 200 wheelchairs to the West Bank. To do this we need to raise $30,000. That´s only $150 per wheelchair. The bureaucratic hurdles involved with shipping to the Middle East have already been surpassed, and the container is in the final stages of preparedness to ship. We would like the shipping container to set sail at the beginning of February 2020. So we have three months to raise the funds to make these wheelchairs reach their destination, where they are awaited with anticipation, as we already have recipients for all of them.
Please help us make this dream come true. Your donation is very important to us and to the families whose lives we touch. Little or small, EVERY donation counts. Remember that every donation is tax deductible.
