    Story

    Children across the country of Georgia desperately require wheelchairs that are fitted to their needs so that they can live more active, independent, and healthy lives.

    The vast majority of children in Georgia who are wheelchair users suffer from disorders that prevent them from independently sitting upright. For these children, a standard wheelchair is not enough. A properly fitted supportive wheelchair is needed to brace their bodies in an upright position. Improved posture means greater comfort, well being, and functional independence. Fitting a child into a wheelchair with correct postural support preserves the child’s physical health and significantly improves her/his overall quality of life.

    The right wheelchair, if fitted correctly, can transform a child’s life. In many cases it means the difference between health and chronic illness, inclusion and isolation, and independence and dependence.

    Tragically, fewer than two in every ten wheelchairs in Georgia are currently fitted to the needs of their users. As a result, thousands of Georgian children continue to suffer preventable health issues, physical deformities, and loss of independence.

    I am raising money on behalf of MAC Georgia to purchase high-quality supportive wheelchairs for children in need.

    EBRD Community Initiative has agreed in principle to match the funds that are raised.

    Please help to provide children with disabilities the tools to lead healthy, independent lives.

    100% of all donations will go towards the purchase and shipping of wheelchairs and supportive devices to Georgia.

    All costs related to staff travel, salaries, and administration will be paid for by MAC Georgia.
