Only 10% of disabled people in developing countries that need a wheelchair have access to one.
About Wheels to Heal
Our charity has continued to build and expand upon the foundation we have established over the past few years.
We have improved the physical, emotional and often the economic well-being of thousands of people who face barriers to mobility due to impoverished situations, social stigma, access and conflict.
We have achieved this by:
Developing an incredibly small but successful supply of recycled wheelchairs, Zimmer frames, walking sticks, crutches, in fact any mobility aid that you can think of we have recycled and sent overseas. Some of our generous donors have also provided high end items such as specialised baths, hoists, rehabilitation equipment and other items that all are used to improve lives overseas.
- Through substantive effort from our core volunteers we raised over £25,000 pounds through Just Giving and were honoured to be invited as finalists to their Annual event in London in October 2018.
- We attend the Glasgow Mela festival increasing our reach to a wider local audience helping to dispel myths about people with disabilities and reducing the stigma these individuals face in many of the recipient countries.
- Reducing the amount of waste and landfill in the UK through recycling and reusing the mobility aids overseas and benefitting people who have no access to this type of life changing equipment
- Enabling those who cannot afford or have no access to mobility aids in many countries which are either developing their economy or facing conflict or civil unrest
Our ethos is humanitarian and environmental. Our goal is to recycle mobility aids which can be reused by people in areas without access to the same support system that exists in the UK for people with disabilities.
