Walkabout Foundation partnered with FUNDACION PIDE UN DESEO to donate 100 wheelchairs in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on December 22, 2010.
Carolina travelled to the country’s capital, accompanied by her parents Rolando and Monica, and brothers Diego and Matias, to personally deliver the wheelchairs.
FUNDACION PIDE UN DESEO, founded by Rosalia Caro, had previously identified the wheelchair recipients, which included children, teenagers, and adults. Among the recipients were people afflicted by paralysis, polio, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and amputees.
Walkabout Foundation is incredibly grateful for the hard work and support of FUNDACION PIDE UN DESEO. These wheelchairs were truly a Christmas gift to the 100 people that received them.
