Haiti 2010 – 6 days after the earthquake

On January 18, 2010, 6 days after the devastating earthquake hit the Caribbean nation of Haiti, Carolina and her father Rolando travelled to Port-au-Prince on behalf of Walkabout Foundation. Walkabout Foundation will donate 1,000 wheelchairs to Haiti over the course of the next few weeks and is scheduled to deliver the first 400 wheelchairs on May 20, 2010.

Please help the victims of the earthquake regain their mobility, freedom, and independence by donating a wheelchair today.

The wheelchairs cost $220 each. They are light, foldable, durable, with all-terrain wheels, and are manufactured in the developing world for the developing world. To those who urgently need one, a wheelchair is a symbol, a sign marking a new start, one filled with hope for a better life.

Your generous donation is very much appreciated, and 100 percent of your contribution will go directly towards purchasing the wheelchairs, which will be distributed directly to those adults and children who are most in need.
