Wheelchair Maintenance A Priority

In mid May, The Red Thread Promise is sending a team back to St. Vincent's to cover a multitude of projects. One of those action items is a follow up on the All Terrain Wheelchairs that we delivered in July 2011.

Tom and Kathy will be taking a variety of supplies to give the chairs a "tune up" including:  10 Bell Universal inner tubes, 10 Bell Ride On Universal bicycle tubes, 2 Schwinn bicycle floor pumps, 2 Bell air stomper foot pumps, 1 Black & Decker ASI300 air station inflator, 6 Tire levers and 2 nipple wrenches. 

While in Port-au-Prince they will also be teaching the workers at St. Vincent's how to install and test the new tubes as well as some simple routine maintenance to keep the wheelchairs in good working order. We look forward to sharing news of a successful trip in our next GlobalGiving report. 

Thank you to everyone who continues to support this project as we work toward setting up a full maintenance center in Port-au-Prince.

Happy riders
