The Wheels of Change Project 2020 is our second fundraising appeal on GlobalGiving for the Romanian Wheelchair Fund, the initiative whereby Motivation Romania Foundation donates each year more than 1,000 appropriate wheelchairs in Romania to children and adults with mobility disabilities. In 2019, with the help of friends in Romania and abroad, Motivation donated 1,127 wheelchairs, including 99 wheelchairs funded through generous GlobalGiving donations.
Irinuca, one year and three months old, is one of the children who received a wheelchair donation from Motivation in 2019. Irinuca`s new Panthera Micro wheelchair allowed her to make the „first steps”, as all toddlers do around her age. Now, Irinuca can go around, play and explore independently, like any other child. Her older brother guides her on this journey, motivating her and teaching her to use her new wheelchair. Irinuca cannot wait to play in the courtyard and out in the street this summer. Read about Irinuca and her new wheelchair here.
Your donation on GlobalGiving, together with those of other friends, will help 18 Romanian wheelchair users receive appropriate wheelchairs in 2020! Another 82 wheelchair users need our help to regain their mobility through GlobalGiving in 2020, so please join our efforts to see their dreams come true!
Transform your donation into a monthly contribution to the Wheelchair Fund 2020 campaign, and invite your friends and family to do the same! GlobalGiving will match your donation 100% while funds are available. Keep walking with Motivation Romania on this journey. Donate here and renew your commitment to support independent living for wheelchair users in Romania !
