'My chair is my life'

By Sarah-Lynne Rand | Fundraising and Communications Manager

People with disabilities in Haiti often face severe discrimination with minimal access to medical care and other basic human rights. Often among the poorest in society, their struggling families may abandon them in desperation, making them some of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in Haiti.

Thanks to your support, Hope Health Action are standing up for these vulnerable people by providing specialist treatment and rehabilitation, respite care for families, and by giving them a voice in their community.

Over the past few weeks, we have worked with Konbit Sante and Walkabout Foundation to ship 300 wheelchairs to our new distribution centre in Haiti. This delivery will dramatically improve the outloook for thousands of people with disabilities over the coming years, and we're excited about the lives that will be changed thanks to these new chairs.

Some have already received these life-changing chairs:

"My new wheelchair will help me get work and other things,” says a latest beneficiary who has received one of the wheelchairs at HCBH (pictured above). “My chair is my life.”

“Before I couldn't go anywhere,” said another wheelchair beneficiary (pictured below). “Now that I have a nice chair to ride in, I can get fresh air regularly. I can even do my own shopping and, most importantly, look for work.”

We hope that more rehab patients and those wilth a disability will go on to be independent. These chairs are already making that possible, and we thank you for your support to make this happen.
