In 2019, Motivation donated 560 wheelchairs to date, including 99 funded by our friends from the US and globally, through the 2019 GlobalGiving campaign.
Each story we share with you illustrates the different ways appropriate wheelchairs can change lives for the better. This time, the wheelchair received by Costel, 33, started a process of learning that will continue for a while. Just five months after falling from a cart and becoming a wheelchair user, Motivation gave Costel an appropriate wheelchair and showed him how to use it to be more independent. Now he is proud that he can wait for his wife with a good coffee when she brings the children back from school. He also knows he still needs to practise his wheelchair skills, to be able to help his wife and raise his kids. Costel`s journey continues, but is now filled with hope.
