Isabella's Kenya campaign

 

Dear friends, 

I am going to Kenya this summer with the Walkabout Foundation to help in the mission of providing wheelchairs and rehabilitation to those with mobility disabilities, helping to restore their freedom and independence.

As part of the Young Committee, I will be traveling to the Walkabout base in Kenya to assemble wheelchairs and provide them to the children and adults in need. 

I hope to make a difference in as many lives as possible and would love to fund ideally 20 wheelchairs.

£250 pays for a custom-fitted, locally repairable wheelchair for someone in need.

£15 pays for a pressure relief cushion, providing the necessary comfort and support to an individual with a spinal cord injury.

Every donation counts!

Thank you very much for supporting me in this fantastic cause.

Isabella 

 

 

What we will be doing in Kenya:

In Kenya, we will learn how to build a wheelchair. We will meet the recipient of the chair we have built and assess, measure, fit, and adjust their chair, as well as training them in how to use and maintain it.

We will visit one of the closest partners, the Metropolitan Sanctuary for Children with Disabilities, where rehabilitation and care are given to people with disabilities. At the center,  ‘Assistive Paper Technology (APT)’ devices are made for children with disabilities from local recycled materials. We will build the APT devices, made with glue, paper, and cardboard alongside Sanctuary staff. 

We will visit the home of a beneficiary who is unable to travel to the center to receive a wheelchair, and we will provide him/her with a chair. We will assist in creating a molded seating insert for a child with a complex disability (who would not otherwise be able to be seated in a standard wheelchair).
