Nadia (age 9, Indonesia) was born with Cerebral Palsy, CTEV (Congenital Talipes Equinovarus), and Scoliosis.
Nadia’s father always did everything he could to provide for her and her many medical needs, but a wheelchair was just too expensive. Without a wheelchair, Nadia hasn’t been able to attend school or play outside with her friends.
Last month, our CLASP service partner, UCP RUK, visited the home of Nadia to deliver her a brand-new UCP Liberty II wheelchair. UCP RUK staff members, wearing PPE to protect against the spread of Coronavirus, made sure that the wheelchair was properly fitted for Nadia’s comfort and health.
For Nadia, her new UCP Liberty wheelchair has been a dream come true. For the first time, she can move freely through her home and even play with her friends outside. Most of all, Nadia can’t wait to go to school!
Wheelchair provision continues all around the world!
Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to move our trainings and meetings online, our CLASP global wheelchair provision program continues to operate around the globe. This spring, shipments of wheelchairs were delivered to Bhutan, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Tajikistan!
Each shipment contained a variety of brand-new, high-quality wheelchairs that will be distributed to those in need, like Nadia. While the end of the Coronavirus pandemic isn’t yet in sight, our mission continues thanks to supporters like you.
Thank you again for your ongoing support of our work.
