GAGA buys new wheelchairs for those living in rural South Africa

During our visit to South Africa we met with Hillcrest Rotary Club. One of their joint projects is the supply of heavy duty wheelchairs for disabled people in rural areas of South Africa.   The chairs are built to meet the needs and practicalities of those living with disability in rural areas; where roads, disabled access, and general care are all severely lacking. £300 buys 10 chairs. When the club takes delivery of the chairs we will post some pictures.
