Out in the busy urban world we are living in, there are wheelchair vans out there. Sadly, however, you do not see them that often. Because it seems to be the case that no matter how progressive our urban or suburban settings are, we are never doing enough for our underprivileged and physically challenged who have to get by in wheelchairs. These specialist vans are necessary to compensate for the fact that wheelchair bound men and women cannot get around ably via public transport networks.
But you can, and there is loads that you can do for those folks who can’t. You won’t necessarily be pushing wheelchairs yourself but you can put those less than privileged centers in need with these special vans. They are apt for those public and private spaces that cannot afford to provide special care for their patients. These wheels are special, but they are special in a different way. As used wheelchair vans they become quite affordable for those that need them.
Of course, many of these down and out centers cannot even afford that much. And that’s where you come in once more. You can begin by rolling up your sleeves again and becoming a little more active in your charity work. Again, not so much physical power is needed but more of the good old brain power to do with networking with the right people with deep pockets to start raising funds for a pair of used wheelchair fans.
And there are many folks out there who are housebound because they can’t get a suitable wheelchair. You can raise funds in this direction as well. Maybe your new NGO could do with a wheelchair van itself, just to get around and spread the message.
