In January, UCP Wheels hosted two, back-to-back Seating Clinics in Nicaragua and Costa Rica, providing a total of 497 wheelchairs to people in need!
WHO WE SERVED
Although the majority of the people we served are adults, the most time is spent custom-fitting complex wheelchairs to children. Individuals with highly involved disabilities, such as those with cerebral palsy, make up the largest client segment.
EQUIPMENT CLIENTS HAD BEFORE
24% Wheelchair That Did Not Fit
12% Crutches Walker or Cane
10% Borrowed Wheelchair
6% Non-functional Wheelchair
