This is powerful! Our senior physiotherapist, Lucie Myall, recently traveled to a refugee camp in Northern Uganda to provide specialist wheelchairs and aids for a community of refugees to promote inclusion and mobility.
Many of the refugees had suffered significant injuries as a result of war conflict, as well as long standing disabilities.
The Wheels for the World team provided pop-up clinics and community visits during the 10-day trip to supply a wide range of custom-made mobility aids and wheelchairs. They also trained local refugee volunteers to support their local disabled community to promote future inclusion and accessibility.
Watch this video to see how Lucie and the Wheels for the World team positively impacted this disabled community in need.
A big thank you to Wheels for the World for all their ongoing work. You can find out more about Wheels for the World here.
