Help the disabled in Vietnam and Inner Mongolia

by Eden Social Welfare Foundation


Eden Social Welfare Foundation plans to donate 100 white canes to persons with visual impairments in Inner Mongolia and donate at least 50 wheelchairs in Vietnam. The right to "mobility" is the first step for the disabled to get out of poverty in developing countries. This project will provide persons with disabilities a chance to participate in their communities and to better enjoy their lives. Also, wheelchairs will be purchased from a sheltered workshop to increase the income of the disabled.

According to the estimate of the UNESCAP, there are 650 million persons with disabilities in Asia and the Pacific, making the region with the highest number of persons with disabilities, but without adequate resources to address to the need. This project will focus on empowering the persons with disabilities in the Inner Mongolia of China and Vietnam. The most vulnerable will be identified and be provided with assistive devices to increase independent living and social participation.


This project will empower the disabled with the assistive devices you donate. In Vietnam, Eden's local Service Center will purchase wheelchairs from a local sheltered workshop and distribute them to those who are in need. In Inner Mongolia of China, we will work with local churches to distribute 100 white canes to persons with visual impairments. With these assistive devices, the disabled can find jobs or go back to schools, which will help them to become more independent.

Long-Term Impact

One wheelchair or one white cane can lead to employment of one disabled person, and then improve the economic situation of the whole family. It can also give disabled person with education opportunity, increase literacy rates, and decrease the poverty in the long term. This project will enable 150 persons with physical disabilities or visual impairments to be independent, to rebuild their self-esteem, to participate in communities, and to enjoy the basic human rights they are entitled to.
