Summary

Your gift gives back freedom of movement and self-confidence to 50 Romanians with mobility disabilities, through quality, personalized wheelchairs. In 2020, Motivation gave back independence via the Wheelchair Fund to 608 wheelchair users - 41 through GlobalGiving donors. In Romania, 1 in 5 persons who need a wheelchair does not have one. Every 5 years, over 40,000 Romanians need a new wheelchair, but only 15,000 receive one.

Challenge

Home isolation is one of the most severe problems for Romanians in wheelchairs. The two main causes are the lack of mobility equipment, to help them actually leave the house, and the lack of accessibility outside the home. In Romania, eligible persons can receive one wheelchair through health insurance every 3 years. In reality, only 1 in 5 people in need actually receive one wheelchair. Those who do not, are left to fend for themselves, while those who do, seldom receive a personalized one.

Solution

MRF provides each wheelchair based on individual assessment of the user (type of disability, physical measurements, individual wheelchair maneuvering potential). The wheelchair is then prescribed and refurbished at headquarters, and delivered home to the user. One of MRF`s 15 regional teams connects with the user, respecting distancing rules, to ensure proper use and independent living skills development. Our peer group trainers (independent wheelchair users themselves) provide ongoing support.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations helps Motivation continue to give back freedom of movement and hope in a life of achievements to 50 persons with mobility disabilities in Romania. In the absence of a proper wheelchair, these 50 persons will remain isolated or, by using an improperly prescribed wheelchair, they will develop pressure sores or spinal deformities that can threaten their lives.
