Wheelchairs of Hope, is one of those projects in which experience meets ethics, in a way that left no-one, including our team, indifferent.
Wheelchairs provide mobility, and mobility provides access to education. So , for many children in developing countries, wheelchairs are a key to a chance for a better life.
