Walkabout in Kenya: Restoring Mobility with Free Wheelchair Mission

In March 2024, the Walkabout Team travelled to Nanyuki, Kenya, together with our long-standing partner, Free Wheelchair Mission, and a group of their supporters from Right at Home. 

Throughout the week, the team not only provided 53 wheelchairs, but also created meaningful connections between beneficiaries and supporters. They gained valuable insights into the complexities of our work and the profound impact it has on the lives of others. From conducting beneficiary assessments to personally fitting each wheelchair, every step of the process was marked by care, compassion, and commitment to empowering mobility. 

Going beyond mere distributions, the team immersed themselves in the local community by participating in various activities with our local team and residents. For example, taking part in sitting volleyball matches not only brought joy and fostered a sense of camaraderie, but also highlighted the importance of inclusion and recreation for individuals with disabilities.

As we reflect on the impact of our work in Kenya, we invite you to join us in supporting our ongoing efforts. Your donation could help us continue to provide essential wheelchairs to individuals in need, fostering independence, dignity, and inclusion within local communities. Together, we can make a difference, one wheelchair at a time.
