Walkabout Foundation is a UK-
and US-registered charity with
the mission of restoring dignity,
freedom and independence by
providing wheelchairs and
rehabilitation in the developing
world and funding research to
find a cure for paralysis.
Walkabout Foundation was founded in 2009 by siblings Luis and Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster after Luis was spinal cord injured in a car accident at the age of just 18. Together, the siblings took action in their community and started Walkabout Foundation to promote awareness of paralysis and disabilities. Luis and Carolina launched the foundation with an 870 kilometer walk along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, and Luis became the first person in the history of Spain to cross the entire country using only the strength of his two arms.
