It is estimated that at least 100 million children, teens, and adults worldwide need a wheelchair but cannot afford one. Some international organizations believe that the number could be as high as 6% of the population of developing countries. In India, 13 million people are physically disabled and 1 million can make them mobile through a wheelchair.
Our high-quality wheelchairs are produced from Ostrich.
We can purchase and deliver a wheelchair to our distribution partners pan India for an average of 75,000 INR. This wheelchair would normally cost another thousand in the market, but the large quantities that we purchase allow us to deliver each one for roughly 75,000 INR, by a 280-wheelchair sea container.
75,000 INR, helps purchase, ship, and deliver a new wheelchair to a person in need and supports the mission of the Give them wings campaign. To sponsor a container of 100 to 280 wheelchairs, please see our Sponsorship Program page.
We distribute wheelchairs worldwide through a network of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that have ongoing humanitarian relief missions in the countries of wheelchair destination. These distribution partners handle all aspects of the importation and distribution ofthe wheelchairs to children that can now go to school, adults that can now go to work, and seniors that can once again become an active part of family life and society.
We collect donations and then send containers of wheelchairs each to our distribution partners in states that have been identified as in great need. For sponsoring a container, you can pick a developing state from our list of approved destinations where we enjoy established and successful distribution relationships. We deliver all India.
For every 10000 rupee donation, you will receive a personalized certificate of appreciation with a color photograph of a wheelchair recipient, a person who had their quality of life greatly improved by the gift of a wheelchair.
Yes. The wheelchairs that we distribute are specifically designed for the rough conditions of India. Extra-heavy wheels, tires, and front casters, sealed bearings, and seating make these wheelchairs the best possible solution for most conditions.
Our goal is to distribute 1 million wheelchairs in a year, and to further the awareness that a wheelchair is no longer an unaffordable item for delivery in underdeveloped parts of India.
